e Sculptor; comissioned.
Four Crowned Saints : Four Crowned Martyrs.
In this commission he solved one of the most difficult problems facing the sculptor, that of the group conceived in the round. Although some of the figures still retain certain Gothicizing elements in the draperies and in the heads, the major impression is of a group of Roman senators born again in the Renaissance. The group is bound together by the spatial relation of one to the other and by a kind of mute conversation in which they are all engaged.
Florence, Itlay : Church of Or San Michele.
