Spanish sculptor, renowned as one of the finest sculptors in Seville in the second half of the 17th century. In his prolific output, mainly of polychrome wood figures and reliefs for retables, he was aided by his flourishing family workshop. While the influence of Andalusian sculptors such as Alonso de Mena, Jos de Arce, Juan Martnez Montañs
and Alonso Cano
is evident in some of the poses and facial expressions of Roldn s figures, they also embody a new Baroque feeling for movement and a dramatic pathos.
Pedro Roldn was the father of four sculptors or painters who helped in his workshop; two other children married artists who also worked for him, and his daughter Luisa Roldn was an independent sculptor.
