Francois Duquesnoy

Francois Duquesnoy was Flemish sculptor, active mostly in Rome, where he established himself, along with Alessandro Algardi (1598-1654), as one of the leading Baroque sculptors, after the incomparable Bernini (1598-1680). His style of Baroque sculpture was less emotional than Bernini’s and more in line with the quietly dramatic style of Algardi. Duquesnoy’s most famous works of Baroque art include his statue of St Andrew (1629-33, Basilica di San Pietro, Vatican) and St Susanna (1630-33, Santa Maria di Loreto, Rome).
