Santi Di Tito

1536-1602 Italy/Mannerism Classicism


Brief Biography-Santi di Tito was born in Florence in 1536. Scholars stated he studied under Bronzino and Baccio Bandinelli. Before the advent of the Baroque period, he was a painter and architect and painted portraits and mythological scenes but mainly did frescoes and altarpieces. Raphael'sworks strongly influenced him, along with classicism, when working in Rome. In 1564 he entered the Accademia del Disegno in Florence, where members worked under the supervision of Giorgio Vasari, for whom he temporarily returned to the mannerist style first offered by Bronzino. However, he later worked in classicism, which suited his taste. The Uffizi holds some of his portraits, and his religious works are in the churches of Florence. Santi died in Florence in 1603.
