In 1488, the Italian sculptor Baccio Bandinelli was born. He was trained by the Florentine master Giovanni Rustici, creating copies of ancient statues. In 1514, the young sculptor attracted the attention of other masters and connoisseurs of beauty by creating a statue of the Apostle Peter, which he made for the Cathedral.

Bandinelli began to receive orders from the Medici family, who became his patrons. The sculptor created tombstones for them, and eventually was invited to Florence, where he worked at the court of Duke Cosimo. When Michelangelo left Florence, Bandinelli was recognized as the first Florentine sculptor. Bartolomeo Ammanati and Francesco Salviati worked in his Studio. Bandinelli himself considered himself a rival of Michelangelo, although he tried to adopt his manner.

In 1530, Baccio Bandinelli decided to falsify documents relating to his ancestry. Thus, he wanted to link his kinship with the noble Bandinelli family of Siena. Below we present the famous sculptural works of the Italian master.
