Giovanni da Bologna Sculpture Reproductions
1529-1608. Also known as Giambologna, or Jean Boulogne. Giovanni da Bologna was a leading Flemish born Mannerist sculptor in Italy during the sixteenth century. Comfortable creating both small statuette and enormous statues, Bologna worked extensively on both. His most famous early work, the Fountain of Neptune, established his reputation and led to large commissions. These included work for the Medici family on the monument for Duke Cosimo I and the mountain god Appennino created for the family’s villa in Pratolino. Of the statuettes his most well know is the flying “Mercury” which was reproduced continuously until the 20th century.
