Tullio Lombardo

Renaissance marble master

Double Portrait in the Ca' d'Or by Tullio

Art in Venice was often a family affair. Tullio (c. 1455–1532) was the son of Pietro Lombardo, brother of Antonio, and father of Sante. He sculpted elaborate tombs with his father and brother, especially the Monument to Doge Pietro Mocenigo in Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Santi Apostoli and San Francesco della Vigna; he also worked on altars in San Giovanni Crisostomo and San Martino, on the rich decorations of Santa Maria dei Miracoli, and on the building and ornamentation of the Scuola Grande di San Marco.
