One Work by Luca Penni


Luca Penni (born in Florence between 1500 and 1504; died in Paris in 1556 or 1557), may have been with his brother, the Raphael pupil Giovanni Francesco Penni, in Rome. According to Vasari, he worked in the atelier of his brother-in-law Perino del Vaga in Genoa around 1529-1533, and was active at Fontainebleau under Primaticcio, presumably from 1538. Possibly in Paris after 1547. Painter, designer of tapestries and engravings, possibly a publisher as well.
