Andrea del Sarto
Self-Portrait - Andrea del Sarto
The last significant Florentine High Renaissance painter. Influenced in subjects, style, and technique by Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. He created handsome, monumental religious pictures and portraits, which are harmonious in color, well balanced, but lack real emotional depth and originality.
Andrea del Sarto’s major works are Punishment of the Gamblers, 1510 (Florence: SS. Annunziata);Madonna of the Harpies, 1517 (Florence: Galleria degli Uffizi).
