Andrea Del Sarto was born in 1486 in Florence, Italy .  He was also known as Andrea d'Angiolo.  The son of Angiolo di Francesco, a tailor, whence the name Sarto, he began as a goldsmith's apprentice and was then taught for several years by Piero di Cosimo. In the course of a few years he was earning his own way, with a steady stream of commissions and enough money to support his entire family.  

The Art movement dominating the 16th century after Michelangelo's death, known as Mannerism, was an attempt to fuse form as conceived by Michelangelo with color as conceived by Raphael.  The artist who came closest to achieving this was Andrea del Sarto, whose work also reveals the influence of Leonardo.    ...  Displaying 750 of 2561 characters.
