ARCHITECTURE AND SCULPTURE
 


Giuseppe Mazzuoli.
 

Giuseppe Mazzuoli (16441725) was an Italian sculptor working in the Bernini-derived Baroque style. He was born in Volterra and trained in Siena but spent his most of his adult working life in Rome, where he was accepted into the workshop of Ercole Ferrata and where he died. Mazzuoli was a member of the extensive workshop of Gian Lorenzo Bernini and carried the extravagant voluptuous, strongly contrasted full Baroque style of his master into the eighteenth century. Mazzuoli was among the co-workers who cooperated in Bernini's tomb of Pope Alexander VII Chigi (1672-78).


Saint Philip by Mazzuoli, (Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, RomeTo carry out the grand commissions of Pope Clement XI and Benedetto Cardinal Pamphili, for twelve over life-size sculptures of the Apostles to fill the niches along the nave of the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the project was divided among all the premier sculptors of Rome. Mazzuoli was assigned Saint Philip, and provided with a sketch, as all the sculptors were, by Clement's favourite painter, Carlo Maratta. His work on the project extended from 1703 to its erection in its niche, 1712/15. Robert Cahn observed "When Saint Philip is compared with other apostles in the series, it is clear that the somewhat old-fashioned, Berniniesque style manifested in Mazzuoli's single assignment was losing appeal."

A major commission of his later years was for the allegorical figures for the tomb of Ramon Perello (died 1720), Grand Master of the Order of Malta, in the church of Saint John, Valletta, Malta. His son, also a sculptor, is generally distinguished as 'Giuseppe Mazzuoli the younger.
