Rossellino, Antonio

(1427-1479)
   Italian sculptor, the brother of Bernardo Rossellino. Antonio was from a family of artists from the town of Settignano and a close associate of Desiderio da Settignano from whom he adopted the Sweet Style. His most important commission is the Tomb of the Cardinal of Portugal (1460-1466) in the Church of San Miniato, Florence. Rossellino was also a masterful portraitist. His busts of the physician Giovanni Chellini (1456; London, Victoria and Albert Museum) and the historian Matteo Palmieri (1468; Florence, Museo Nazionale del Bargello) are among the finest of the period.
