Benucci Galleria d'Arte

(documented in Rome from 1643 to 1677)

Bust of Cardinale Francesco Maria Brancaccio

Marble, cm 84x63x21

The execution of the sculpture recalls the manner of Bernardo Fioriti, a classicist sculptor who was a pupil of the Ferrata, not free from Bernini's influences. Note the style of Fioriti in the schematic management of the volumes, in the stiffness of the shapes and in the graphic tendency of the representation of the folds of the collar, beard and eyes.
