Magnificence of Marble

Bartolomé Ordóñez and Diego de Silóe

This opulent book brings together two of the most important Spanish sculptors of the sixteenth century, Bartolomé Ordóñez and Diego de Silóe, focusing on their work in Naples. Between 1513 and 1518, the pair helped the southern Italian city blossom into one of the most important European centers of marble sculpture. This book presents an account of their work in Naples, reproducing it in nearly two hundred brilliant, full-color images, showing how they managed to combine the Italian Renaissance with elements from antiquity and Iberian naturalism.
