MAZZONI, Guido
(b. ca. 1450, Modena, d. 1518, Modena)

Lamentation

c. 1475
Pigmented terracotta
Santa Maria degli Angeli, Bussetto

The Lamentation in Bussetto is the earliest group attributable to Mazzoni. In it, the broad handling of form and strident characterization betray his beginnings as a mask-maker.
