Cesare Dandini

1596-1657 Italy/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Cesare Dandini from Florence was the first successful artist of the Dandini family. He was followed by his younger brother Vincenzo, his nephew Pietro and his sons Ottaviano and Vincenzo. Pietro was perhaps regarded as the most fruitful of them all, however it doesn’t take away from the refined skills of his uncle. Cesare trained under Francesco Curradi, Christofano Allori and Domenico Passignano in succession. He was influenced by several other Italian artists, Pietro da Cortona who worked on the Palazzo Pitti in Florence being one of them. One of his many patrons was Lorenzo de’ Medici. His alter-piece in the Florence chapel L'Annonciata is one of his most notable works. Alessandro Rosi was one of his many successful students.
