4 Works by Cristofano Allori


Christoforo Allori (1577-1621) received his first training under his father, Alessandro Allori (1535-1607), one of the most influential Florentine painters of the later sixteenth century. Alessandro stood wholly in the Mannerist tradition of his teacher, Agnolo Bronzino, and the late Michelangelo. When Cristoforo early on turned towards the 'modern' artists of the early Baroque, there was a break between father and son. Cristoforo, who died in his early forties from a protracted infection, became one of the leading representatives of the new style with portraits and history paintings.
