Pietro Tacca

Tacca, Pietro (pyāˈtrō täkˈkä) [key], 1577–1644, Italian sculptor. A pupil of Giovanni Bologna, Tacca adopted the tortuous poses of mannerism and combined them in his bronzes with a classical naturalism. Tacca's works (e.g., the equestrian portrait of Philip IV of Spain, Madrid) form a link between mannerist and baroque sculpture.
