Biography  
Girolamo Macchietti


Girolamo Macchietti began his artistic training in Florence in the studio of Michele Tosini, which he entered in 1545 at age ten. In 1555 he enrolled as an assistant of Giorgio Vasari and spent four years collaborating on the decoration of the Palazzo Vecchio as a painter of frescoes. After a brief stint in Urbino, where he decorated the Palazzo degli Albanini with grottesche and battle scenes, Macchietti traveled to Rome. During his nearly two-year stay in the city, beginning around 1560, Macchietti studied the works of Michelangelo and Raphael and absorbed the pictorial language of Parmigianino, amassing a large collection of engravings after the Parmese master’s drawings.
