Girolamo Ticciati (1676–1744) was an Italian sculptor and architect.

Life[edit]

Born in Florence, Girolamo attended the Academy Toscana Granducale in Rome and studied under the Florentine sculptor Giovanni Battista Foggini.

In 1708 he moved to Vienna, where he became a sculptor and architect to the imperial court. He later returned to Florence, where he had great influence over intellectual life. He was a member of Florence's La Colombaria; a society carrying out historical, philological and scientific studies.

Ticciati's work can be seen throughout Italy and in major churches including the Santi Vicenzo e Caterina de' Ricci, Prato, where a series of framed relief sculptures stand above the altar and nave.

In Sotheby's 2010 'The Winter Collection', Ticciati's terracotta piece 'Relief with the Adoration of the Magi' was auctioned and sold at £87,5000. The catalogue states Ticciati is 'emerging as a defined personality'[1] in the continuing reassessment of sculpture from the late Baroque period.

The Ticciati family has continued to be associated with the arts; the pianist and composer Francesco Ticciati (1893–1949), composer and arranger Niso Ticciati (1924–1972) and in the present day: the designer Giovanna Ticciati, the violinist Hugo Ticciati and his brother the conductor Robin Ticciati.
