Lorenzo di Credi

c. 1459-1537 Italy/High Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Lorenzo di Credi, a disciple of Andrea Verrocchio, was born in Florence. He studied alongside Lionardo da Vinci and Pietro Perugino. He was strongly influenced by Lionardo, and his manner of pencilling skills were said to surpass that of his master. When Verrocchio died, Lorenzo took over management of his atelier. Some of his ‘Holy Family’ and ‘Madonna’ works have a resemblance to the style of Perugino. Alongside painting, he also engaged in the art of sculpture and enjoyed considerable success in both mediums. He had a contented retirement, away from the strains of his profession.
