Tullio Lombardo

Tullio Lombardo (1460 November 17, 1532), also known as Tullio Solari, was an Italian Renaissance sculptor. He was the brother of Antonio Lombardo and son of Pietro Lombardo. The Lombardo family worked together to sculpt famous Catholic churches and tombs. The church of San Zanipolo contains the Monument to Doge Pietro Mocenigo, executed with his father and brother, and the Monument to Doge Andrea Vendramin, an evocation of a Roman triumphal arch encrusted with decorative figures. Tullio also likely completed the funereal monument to Marco Cornaro in the Church of Santi Apostoli and the frieze in the Cornaro Chapel of the Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. He also participated in the work to decorate Santa Maria dei Miracoli, Venice.

In 2002, Lombardo's marble statue Adam, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection, fell to the floor and shattered. It is still being restored. The sculpture, created in the Renaissance, was the first recorded free-standing male nude since antiquity.
