Agostino di Duccio

(ägōstē`nō dē do͞ot`chō), b. 1418, d. after 1481, Florentine sculptor. Agostino worked mainly in other parts of Italy; he carved marble narrative reliefs for the facade of the cathedral at Modena, decorated portions of the so-called Tempio Malatestiana at Rimini, and worked on the facade of San Bernardino at Perugia. Somewhat awkward in his rendering of anatomy, Agostino nevertheless developed a lively style. There are numerous charming reliefs by him of the Madonna and Child (Opera del Duomo, Florence; Louvre; National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.).
