Rosso Fiorentino (1494-1540) was an Italian Mannerist painter, in oil and fresco, belonging to the Florentine school. Born in Florence Italy with the red hair that gave him his nickname, Rosso first trained in the studio of Andrea del Sarto alongside his contemporary, Pontormo. In late 1523, Rosso moved to Rome, where he was exposed to the works of Michelangelo, Raphael, and other Renaissance artists, resulting in the realignment of his artistic style.   more from wikipedia »
