Scultura lignea settecentesca a Cerro Maggiore
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The documents in the parish archive of Cerro Maggiore allow to give a name or doing some hypothesis about some of the local artworks, in particular wooden sculptures. The very fine statue of the Immaculate Conception made by the up to now unknown Giovan Battista Giarmaneli (or Germanelli) is placed among the artistic tendencies of the early XVIII century. A news resulted from the archivistic sources is the project of the Crucifix on the triumphal arc by Giovanni Antonio Cucchi of which no one knew of the collaboration for sculptural works; from the documents emerges also, as a carver a «Pedracino» who, in an hypothetic way, could be connected to Lorenzo Peracino, known until now only as a painter and modeller. It could be considered interesting the documentary attribution of the Crucifix to Antonio Bonacina, until known only as minor painter. At last the author analyses the statue of Our Lady of the Rosary, perhaps made from Giuseppe Antignati and his workshop.
