Francesco Morandini


Francesco Morandini

Francesco Morandini (c. 1544 - 1597) was an Italian painter active in Florence, working in a Mannerist style. He was also called called il Poppi for his native town. He was a pupil of Vincenzo Borghini, and later he was Giorgio Vasari's assistant for many years.

He participated in the Vincenzo Borghini and Giorgio Vasari-directed decoration of the Studiolo of Francesco I with two canvases: one relating a "Alexander and Campaspe" (1571) and the other depicting a "Foundry" (1572). He also painted an altarpiece on the "Tobias and the Angel" for the church of San Francesco in Prato. In 1584-1585, he worked in the "Salviati Chapel" in San Marco alongside Giovanni Battista Naldini and others; his contribution is a canvas of "Christ healing the Lepers".
