Francesco Mosca (Simone Mosca Moschino) (c 1546-1578)


There is very little information about this 16th c. Mannerist sculptor. He is the son of Simone Mosca, also a sculptor, and he may have completed some of his father's works. There is a A marble relief of iane and Acteon at the Bargello in Florence. The largest collection of his works are in the cathedral at Pisa. These include a nude statue of St Sebastian and figures of St Peter and St Paul. Two other works (a Virgin and Child and Angel) are in the chapel of the Annunciation.

Mosca's large sculpture, Atalanta and Meleager with the Calydonian Boar, ca. 1564-1565, is on prominent display in the Sculpture Hall of the newly remodeled Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.
