 Charity - Jacopo Sansovino
Sansovino always achieved in his figures something of the nobility and amplitude sought after as an ideal among artists of the time, and even in so small a group as the Charity one feels the splendid grace of the superhuman beings he strove to create.
The bequest of the Altman Collection has increased from two to seven the examples of figure sculpture in Sansovino's style owned by the Museum, the two pieces previously shown being small Madonnas, one in bronze, the other in terracotta, the former attributed to the master himself, the other to his school.
The group of Charity included among the Altman sculptures, repeats the type of these two Madonnas, although it is finer in quality and execution than they and may be accepted as a work from the master's own hand and an especially happy example of his skill.

 Sansovino
Andrea Contucci detto il Sansovino (Andrea dal Monte San Savino), scultore e architetto, fu chiamato così dal luogo di nascita in provincia di Arezzo.
Si aggiunga tuttavia che Andrea Sansovino resta in parte uno scultore “antico-moderno”, cioè di transizione tra il Quattro e il Cinquecento: si potrebbe dire ch’egli tra gli scultori assuma una posizione analoga e, modernamente, non oltre quella rappresentata, nella pittura, da un Mariotto Albertinelli o da un fra’ Bartolomeo.
Nel complesso delle sue opere Andrea Contucci dimostra di essere anzitutto un profondo conoscitore della tecnica del marmo, dell’ornamentazione e del rilievo prospettico, dimostrando di avere arricchito sempre più le proprie esperienze di scultore in un continuo crescendo dal periodo giovanile fino all’attività lauretana.

 La Scultura Italiana - Andrea Sansovino
Scultore e architetto, il Sansovino, forse allievo del Pollaiolo, fu attivo dapprima a Firenze nella chiesa di Santo Spirito (altare del Sacramento nella Cappella Corbinelli) e a Fiesole (altare Ferrucci nel Duomo).
Sia come scultore sia come architetto, il Sansovino risulta ancora legato a modi quattrocenteschi, esili e tersi, congiunti a un gusto decorativo che echeggia i modi lombardi diffusi a Roma; nella sua opera si precisa via via l'attenzione al classicismo romano attraverso la lezione di Bramante e Raffaello.
