Monument to Bartolomeo Aragazzi: Effigy

1427-37
Marble
Cathedral, Montepulciano

The surviving fragments of the dismembered Aragazzi monument at Montepulciano are almost exclusively the work of Michelozzo.

The effigy is one of the seven fragments of the monument which are displayed on different walls of Montepulciano Cathedral.

Bartolomeo Aragazzi (c. 1385-1429) was an Italian humanist, secretary and then chancellor to Pope Martin V. He was a pioneering researcher of Classical texts.
