Giovanni Maria Morlaiter
Venice's Rococo chisel master
...the most brilliant interpreter of the rococo in Venetian sculptureSemenzato
If Venetian sculptor Giovanni Maria Morlaiter (1699 - 1781) hadn't worked most of his life in Venice, and left most of his work in a single church, the Gesuati, where he worked side by side with Tiepolo, he'd probably be better known. Many museums around the world have examples of his elaborate candlesticks.
