Il Crocifisso della cappella di Matteo Baccari nella chiesa romana di S. Angelo in Pescheria
The polychrome wooden crucifix in the church S. Angelo in Pescheria (Rome), documented for the first time in 1367, seems to be connected with the chapel commissioned by the jurist Matteo Baccari. The recent restoration has emphasized the material properties of the sculpture, which is a fine example of the dying Christ iconography. The sculpture follows the stylistic synthesis of the hypotethical model, that is the monumental crucifix in the S. Maria in Monticelli church. In this paper it is assumed that the unknown artist belongs to the Sienese school of the second quarter of the XIV century; in addition, some connections are put forth with the style of Angelo di Ventura, who realized – with his assistants – the Orsini Monument in S. Maria Sopra Minerva (1341).
