Vincenzo Dandini


Student of Cesare Dandini, Pietro Da Cortona
Teacher of Anton Domenico Gabbiani

Vincenzo Dandini was a master craftsman who trained under his brother Cesare and at the Accademia del Disegno before entering the workshop of the eminent painter and architect, Pietro Da Cortona, in Rome. Returning to Florence, he worked for the Medici court, often in collaboration with Cesare, painting frescos and producing designs for the Medici tapestry factory. He also composed numerous paintings based on religious or literary themes, displaying his well-drawn figures in active poses. Vincenzo tutored his nephew, the painter Pietro Dandini, and the painter Anton Domenico Gabbiani, passing on traditional principles of drawing and painting gathered under his masters.
