Venice during the Renaissance and Mannerism: Sculpture

Alessandro Vittoria is recognized as the greatest Venetian sculptor. He worked with Veronese, Sansovino and Palladio. Alessandro Vittoria was strongly influenced by Michelangelo and Bartolomeo Ammannati.

Vittoria's sculpture was quite different from that of Sansovino; unlike him Alessandro Vittoria preferred to give his statues a sense of movement, which expressed rhythm and elegance at the same time. The most interesting works by Vittoria are mainly bronze relieves or little marble statues like those for the altar of San Francesco della Vigna, in Venice.
