Pollaiuolo, Antonio del

Pollaiuolo, Antonio del
(1431-1498)
   Florentine artist who worked with his brother Piero in Florence and Rome. Antonio was known mainly as a sculptor; his bronze statuette Hercules and An-taeus (ca. 1475) is his principal work in this medium. The two broth-ers together painted an altarpiece, The Martyrdom of St. Sebastian (1475). Antonio also made a highly regarded engraving (his only sur-viving work in that form), The Battle of Ten Naked Men (ca. 1465-1470). His work is striking for its concentration on realistic anatomical structures, evident in the straining muscles of his nude figures, and he is known to have practiced dissection in order to in-vestigate the workings of muscles and tendons.
