The Artist: Mariotto Albertinelli (1474 – 1515) was an Italian Renaissance painter of the Florentine school. He was a close friend and collaborator of Fra Bartolomeo and their joint works appear as if they have been painted by one hand. His work shows the influence of Perugino, Piero di Cosimo and Lorenzo di Credi as well as of Flemish painting. Some of Albertinelli’s works reveal an eccentrically archaic tendency while others show a return to conventions of the early Renaissance.
