This is the first monograph dedicated to Andrea Riccio, one of the greatest--and least-known--bronze masters of the Renaissance. The publication focuses on Riccio’s autograph works and illustrates more than thirty statuettes and reliefs from each phase of his career, as well as the few bronzes believed to be derived from the master’s lost compositions. This body of works reveals Riccio to be a sculptor whose creative genius equaled that of Donatello, whose understanding of antiquity rivaled Mantegna’s, and whose ability to express human passion could approach Leonardo’s own. Accompanying an exhibition at The Frick Collection, New York, the book includes essays on Riccio’s life and career by leading scholars in the fields of Renaissance sculpture. The catalogue contains detailed entries on each sculpture and is richly illustrated with over 240 photographs of Riccio’s bronzes.
