Antonio Tantardini Furniture

In a country famed for its skilled carvers and working in an age when the virtuoso carving technique was highly prized, Antonio Tantardini was one of the very best exponents of master carvers in 19th-century Italy. Vicario describes Tantardini's skill as 'un abilità tecnica stupefacente'. The present amazing quality marble group epitomizes Tantardini's exceptional talents as a carver. Lesser sculptors might have shied away from attempting to carve a life-size wicker crib in marble, but Tantardini has relished the challenge. The result is a stunning achievement of verismo Italian sculpture. Subtle allegorical sculptures such as those by Monti, Magni and Tantardini served to endorse the legitimacy of the Risorgimento and their aspirational message is certainly more inspiring than the countless public statues of Risorgimento heroes which litter every Italian piazza; of which Tantardini too did his fair share.
