Biography Francesco Morandini
Francesco Morandini called 'Il Poppi' (1544-1597), a Florentine
Mannerist, was, with Giovambattista Naldini, a ward of the influential
Don Vincenzo Borghini, the prior of the Ospedale degli Innocenti.
Trained by Vasari, Morandini's softer style however owed more to the
influences of Pontormo, Naldini, and Andrea del Sarto. Morandini
contributed to the decorations for the 1565 wedding of Francesco de'
Medici; executed ceiling decorations and two paintings for his famous Studiolo (1570-75) in the Palazzo Vecchio (The Bronze Foundry and Alexander bestows Campaspe on Apelles);
he worked on the Funeral of Cosimo I in 1574; painted ephemera for the
baptism of Duke Francesco's son, Filippo, in 1577
