Quick Reference

(b Milan, 14 July 1658; d Rome, 9 Dec. 1728).

Italian sculptor. He was the outstanding sculptor in Rome during his period, a figure comparable to his friend Maratta in painting. The vigour and boldness of his style derive from Bernini, but Rusconi was more restrained and classical. His most important works are four over-life-size marble statues of Apostles in St John Lateran (1708–18) and the tomb of Pope Gregory XIII (1715–23) in St Peter's.
