Antonio del Pollaiuolo

c.1431-1498 Italy/Early Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Antonio del Pollaiuolo was the older brother of Piero Pollaiuolo. They worked together in Florence. Both of them were painters, goldsmiths and sculptors; however, Antonio was more successful as a sculptor, and he dissected bodies to study anatomy, although it was a subject of interest to both of them. Donatello and Andrea del Castagno influenced their work, and Piero studied under Castagno. In Rome, Antonio made the tomb of Pope Sixtus the Fourth and the Tomb of Pope Innocent the Eight. Sandro Botticelli was one of his most noted students. He died in Rome in 1498.
