Period: 19th Century

Maker: Valentino Besarel

Valentino Besarel Born in Zoldo, near Bellune, home town of the great carver of the Seventeenth Century Andrea Brustolon. He was encouraged by his father to study under Professor Federici and worked as a carver for a noted architect Guiseppe Segusini. Later, he received private commissions and in 1861 his trade card listed amongst his clients Edward, Prince of Wales, the British Consul, Layard and the King of Italy.

The churches of Este and Conselve, near Padua possess many groups of saints executed by him; armchairs in the manner of Brustolon signed by Besarel are recorded.
