Christ at the Sepulchre by Andre del Sarto

Engraving 11.5 x 9.5 inches.

 

Andrea d'Agnolo was called 'del Sarto' from his father's trade as a tailor. He was the leading Florentine painter of the early 16th century. He succeeded in adapting Leonardo da Vinci's sfumato to a more lively and warmer range of colours, and was a major influence on Pontormo, his younger contemporary, and sometime student.
