ARCHITECTURE AND SCULPTURE


Stefano Maderno


(b ?Rome, 1575; d Rome, 17 Sept 1636).

Italian sculptor. He was one of the outstanding sculptors in Rome in the early 17th century, and his work, together with that of such sculptors as Pietro Bernini, Nicolas Cordier, Camillo Mariani and Francesco Mochi, is generally considered to mark a transition from the late Renaissance (or Mannerist) style to the early Baroque. He has long been considered a Lombard, but Donati (1945) questioned his northern origins on the basis of his death certificate, which gives Palestrina (30 km from Rome) as his place of birth. Pressouyre (1984) published the marriage contract drawn up between the sculptor and his second wife, Lucrezia Pennina, on 24 October 1611, which refers to both Maderno and his father as Roman, and drew attention to the artist’s signature on his relief of Rudolf II of Hungary Attacking the Turks (1613–15) on the tomb of Paul V in S Maria Maggiore
