Andrea del Sarto Gallery

Known as the "Faultless Painter," Andrea del Sarto was one of the finest portraitists and religious artists of the Italian Renaissance. Del Sarto trained under Piero de Cosimo and others but was chiefly influenced by Masaccio and Michelangelo. His frescoes in Florence rank among the greatest works of his time. His style, known as "Mannerism", is serene and noble, characteristic of High Renaissance art. Apart from portraits, he painted many religious works, including the Madonna of the Harpies, an example of Classical beauty reminiscent of Raphael.
