other mediaThe Martyrdom of St. Cecilia, Stefano Maderno, 1599-1600
Considered to be his magnum opus, Maderno’s sculpture of St. Cecilia is a stark contrast to the typical baroque style. It is not a dramatic, idealized depiction of the saint, but a graphic portrayal of her corpse. St. Cecilia’s tomb was rediscovered in 1599 during the renovation of the church St. Cecilia in Trastevere in Rome. When the priests opened the tomb, they discovered her incorrupt corpse. Maderno was commissioned the same year to replicate the body in marble in the position it supposedly had been found.
