Andrea Bregno, Italian sculptor and architect, was born in Osteno, Como in 1418/1421 and died in Rome in 1503/1506. He was very active in Rome, where together with L.Capponi and Giovanni Dalmata, represented the currents of the north-Italian sculpture. In the altar for Rodrigo Borgia (1473) (Alexander VI) and in the burial monument to the cardinal Cristoforo della Rovere (Santa Maria del Popolo), in the monuments of the cardinal Coca (Santa Maria sopra Minerva), of Pietro Riario (Santi Apostoli), and in the works executed for Vatican encharged to him by Sixtus IV (balustrade and choir of the Sistine Chapel), could be seen the expressions of mixed classic Tuscanian and Lombardian modes, as Bregno was working with Mino da Fiesole.
In 1481-1485 the artist was called in Siena for the works of Duomo, where he created altar of Piccolomini, for which served as an example the altar of Borgia in Rome.As you visit 'Bregno, Andrea (1418/21-1503/06)' you may also like following articles . . .
