Biography from Christie's London, King Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Some reliable information exists on Giovanni Andrea (d. 1365), who was a teacher, canonist and prominent jurist in the first half of the 14th century, and Bettina (1311-1355), his daughter, known for her intellect and beauty. Mary Ann Glendon notes in The Forum and the Tower (Oxford, 2001, p. 57) that Bettina, along with her sister Novella, was known for taking over her father's lectures when he was away on diplomatic missions. In doing so she and her sister became the world's first female law professors. Furthermore, and according to local legend, Bettina's beauty was so great that she was even obliged to deliver her lectures from behind a screen in order not to distract her students. The inscription on the base of Federico's bust offered here indicates that he too was a doctor and jurist, though current research has not yet brought any further biographical information to light.John Pope-Hennessy and Ulrich Middeldorf were probably the first academics to discuss the sitters and authorship of the Calderini family member busts since Marcello Oretti mentioned them in the 18th century. However, it was not until Andrea Bacchi published his 1996 article (loc. cit.) that a thorough study was made connecting the five known surviving busts. Today they represent a rare survival of late 16th century historicising portraits.
