Italian sculptor, painter, and architect
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Bandinelli was the son of Michelangelo de'Brandini, a successful Florentine goldsmith. Baccio was a loyal subject of the Medici, even when they were in exile 1494-1513; consequently he was rewarded by receiving commissions after the elections to the papacy of Leo X (Giovanni de' Medici) and Clement VII (Giulio de' Medici), and after Cosimo de' Medici became Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1537. His political patronage made him unpopular with most Florentines, including Michelangelo, who were Republicans and criticized his art works.
