Nicola Pisano was a much admired thirteenth-century Italian sculptor and architect, often considered to be the founder of modern sculpture. Within this 1938 text, G. H. and E. R. Crichton begin by giving a biographical background of Pisano, before looking at those early sculptors whose works may have inspired him. In the book's second part, the Crichtons write in detail about the sculptures of Pisano, describing the pulpits at Pisa and Siena as well as the Fountain at Perugia. The Crichtons also discuss those pieces often accredited to Pisano which seem unlikely to be his. Finally, they share their conclusions on Pisano's influence on Italian sculpture. These fascinating accounts of Pisano's life and works are supplemented by numerous illustrative plates. This book will appeal to scholars of art and sculpture in general, as well as of Pisano and thirteenth-century sculpture more specifically.
