4 Works by Rosso Fiorentino


After first successes in Florence, Giovanni Battista di Jacopo di Guaspare, called Rosso Fiorentino (Florence 1494-1540 Paris or Fontainebleau), worked from 1523 to 1527 in Rome, where he produced paintings, frescoes and preliminary drawings for prints. Beginning in 1530 he worked at the French court in Fontainebleau, where he was named court painter in 1532. His idiosyncratic, occasionally macabre and bizarre, inventions also left their mark on sixteenth-century applied arts.
