Andrea Brustolon

1662 - 1732

After being trained by his father Jacopo, who was active as a sculptor, Brustolon worked for his uncle, the painter Agostino Ridolfi. In 1677 he went to Venice, where he joined the workshop of Filippo Parodi, whose graceful, dynamic compositions exerted a formative influence on him. In 1679 he sojourned for a short time in Rome; after returning to Venice, he spent the next twenty years designing a large number of intricate and elegant pieces of furniture, interior decorations and figures for Pietro Venier and other Venetian nobles. In 1695 he moved back to Belluno. He worked almost exclusively in wood and executed numerous altar sculptures and tabernacles for churches in and around Belluno, all of which are distinguished by the high quality of their realization and a pronounced predilection for detail.
