PISANO, Andrea
(b. ca. 1290, Pontedera, d. ca. 1348, Orvieto)

St Stephen

c. 1340
Marble, height 177 cm
Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Florence

Under the influence of Giotto and antique art, Andrea achieved a sense of monumentality, a quality that characterizes the statue of St Stephen, to be identified with that carved by Andrea for the niche of the Arte di Calimala on Orsanmichele in 1339-40.
