Catalogue Note

Antonio Trentanove was born in Rimini but trained in Bologna where he was awarded two medals by the Accademia Clementina in 1765 and 1766. Returning to Rimini, he carried out a number of commissions and subsequently worked in Forli and Faenza. The present figure can be closely compared with the figure of Faith in San Biaggio, Romagna, illustrated by Riccomini; note in particular the treatment to the physiognomy and drapery with soft voluminous folds (see illustration above left).
