Tino di Camaino

14th-century Sienese Master

Tomb of Antonio d'Orso, Duomo, by Tino

Tino di Camaino of Siena was a pupil of the great Giovanni Pisano and one of the greatest sculptors of the early 1300s. He spent most of his life working for the Opera del Duomo in Siena, and is perhaps best known for his refined sepulchres. Two are in Florence: the Tomb of Antonio d'Orso, in the Duomo, and the Tomb of Gastone della Torre in the museum of Santa Croce. He also sculpted an angel now in the Fondazione Salvatore Romano.
