Nanni d'Antonio di Banco

Nanni d'Antonio di Banco (nänˈnē däntônˈyō dē bängˈkō) [key], c.1384–1421, Florentine sculptor. After study with his father, Antonio di Banco, who worked on the cathedral of Florence, Nanni executed his major figural sculpture for the cathedral and the Church of Orsanmichele. He relied upon classical Roman models for elements of his basically Gothic figures. Many of his works stood as companions to works by Donatello.
