In Partnership with Benappi Fine Art
Florence, c. 1565
This important and previously unknown altarpiece was commissioned by the illustrious Abess Maddalena Altoviti for the Convent of the Camaldoli in Luco di Mugello, near Florence. It’s execution in the mid-1500s, was due to Michele Tosini, called Michele di Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio, one of the main protagonists in Giorgio Vasari’s circle. This Crucifixion stands as a splendid example of Tosini’s mature style and due to it’s balance and masterly manner can compare with works by Giorgio Vasari, Bronzino, Pontormo or Francesco Salviati.
