Abstract :
The Arch of Constantine (Rome) played a decisively influential role as source for Tullio Lombardo, both in his reinvention of monumental classicizing relief which was manifest in the two narrative reliefs on the facade of the Scuola di San Marco, Venice (ca.1589-1590) (one of them, S. Mark Healing Anianus, was probably executed by Tullio's brother Antonio), and in his Vendramin Tomb (erected ca.1493-1494 in S. Maria dei Servi, later transferred to its present location in the choir of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, Venice). ... Argues that many of the sophisticated and complex (illusionistic) features typical of the Aurelian and Hadrianic era reliefs on Constantine's arch were replicated by Tullio in his Scuola di San Marco reliefs. He could not have comprehended and so knowledgeably imitated these characteristics by means other than direct, first-hand observation, therefore a trip to Rome prior to his Scuola reliefs must be regarded as virtually certain. ;
