    Description:

    The cupola was probably not included on Michelangelo’s 1547 model, and it was not until 1558 that the carpenters began work on the larger-scale model (1:5; Rome, Vatican, Mus. Stor. A. Tesoro S Pietro) for the drum and dome, which Michelangelo justifiably felt to be the last task of his life (he was then 83). Whereas Bramante and Antonio da Sangallo (ii) had favoured an all'antica single-shell dome, Michelangelo’s was to be composed of two hemispherical shells. His starting-point …

    Description:

    The funeral monument of Countess Matilda di Canossa, Pope Gregory VII’s great champion against the Emperor Henry VI. The monument was conceived by Bernini who began it in 1633, commissioned by Urban VIII. The head of Matilda is by Andrea Bolgi (1605-1656), the rest of the figure by Luigi Bernini. The central bas-relief which shows Henry IV kneeling before Gregory VII on 28 January 1077 after waiting or three days and three nights to be received, is the work of Stefano Speranza. The two ch…

    Description:

    St Longinus is one of the four colossal marble statues of the saints associated with the relics Bernini assembled for display in the crossing; the head of the apostle Andrew; the lance of Longinus; Veronica’s veil; and fragments of the True Cross brought to Rome by St Helena. As a group they relate to the baldacchino. St Veronica and St Helena seem to direct their attention to and move towards the papal altar at which Christ’s Passion is re-enacted during Mass. St Andrew and St Longin…

    Description:

    Portrayed as he gives a blessing and preaches, while holding the keys to the kingdom of heaven. The foot is worn thin from centuries of being touched by pilgrims. The backdrop is a mosaic.

    The bronze figure of St. Peter in St. Peter’s, Rome, was based on the antique statue of a philosopher (now Rome, Grotte Vaticane), remodelled to represent Peter. The long-disputed dating of the bronze figure to the late 13th century, first advocated by Wickhoff (1890), was confirmed by an analysis of t…

    Commissioned in 1497 by the French Cardinal Jean Villiers de La Grolais (ca. 1430-1499) for his own tomb, it was begun the following year and was finished by 1500. It signals the beginning of Michelangelo’s maturity as a sculptor.
