The Veronese sculptor Girolamo Campagna was the principal pupil of Danese Cattaneo in Venice. He became an outstanding member of the third generation of Venetian sculptors whose style was indebted to Jacopo Sansovino. His brother Giuseppe also worked with him on several projects. The activity of the Campagna workshop appears to have been extensive, supplying bronze statuettes to collectors throughout the Veneto.
