Churches >  Church of Santo Stefano
Saint Andrew

Author: Strasbourg wood carver
Century: XV°
DATE: XV century      POSITION: courtyard of sculptures (on map n°47) METHOD: sculpture  MATERIAL: wood

The wooden sculpture representing Saint Andrew is part of a pair with Saint Jerome, both done by the same wood carver; previously conserved in the Sacristy and later joining the sculpture courtyard.

It is presumed that the work was once found on the Cobelli altar dedicated to Saint Nicholas by Tolentino along the left nave, because of its iconographical resemblance to the marble series by Pietro Lombardo, that replaced them at the end of the XV century.
