dc.descriptionSan Francesco, Arezzoen
dc.description.abstractMichele da Firenze specialized in terracotta -- though he is documented also as a stonecarver, only his works in terracotta survive. This elaborate tomb (originally painted) in San Francesco in Arezzo was made for the jurist Francesco Roselli. Giancarlo Gentilini speculates that the unusual choice to make a tomb out of terracotta rather than marble may have been because humble clay was seen in Antiquity as a virtuous medium.
