Nicola Pisano

Monument to Nicola Pisano by Salvino Salvini, Santa Maria del Carmine, corso Italia, Pisa
The work of Nicola Pisano (c. 1220—c. 1284), along with that of his son Giovanni and other artists of their workshop, created a new sculptural style for the late 13th and the 14th centuries in Italy. This monument to him, made by the sculptor Salvino Salvini in 1864, is placed in front of the church of Santa Maria del Carmine (St. Mary of Carmel) in Corso Italia.

It is really nice to look at and it's good they give recognition to sculptors.

When I look at Pisano's work, it makes me feel like crying about most of what is done nowadays.

I have never been to Pisa but I surely remember his gorgeous shrine at the Basilica in Bologna.
