da Montelupo: Scultore e architetto del Cinquecento.
The Nativity by Fra Bartolommeo (Baccio
della Porta; 1472-1517), 1504/07.
As a result, the city was left in the grip of a self-focused conservative mentality epitomized in the works of Ghirlandaio and evident, even twenty years into the new century, in the derision that met Baccio
d'Agnolo's attempt to introduce modern square windows, already long in use in other Italian cities, in the Palazzo Bartoloni in Piazza Santa Trinita (1517-1520).
His comments reveal his interest in sculpture--'Baccio

On the basis of this pail; I would venture an attribution to Bandini of another terracotta, a hawkish bust in the Ashmolean Museum, catalogued by Nicholas Penny in 1992 as a St Paul by Baccio

Baldini, the brothers Pollaiuolo, and Maso Finiguerra, this anonymous Florentine print is completed by a framing wreath of music-making cupids and by a potentially lewd inscription above the couple, 'dammi conforto' ('give me comfort'), which might speak volumes in the case of Leonardo's many later drawings of such couples.
In this context it is instructive to point to Vasari's reference to a free standing wax model made by Baccio
Bandinelli in 1512 of an emaciated St Jerome in Penitence, which showed on the bones the muscles and nerves and which Leonardo considered unsurpassed in its anatomical real ism.
BB 1598D was proposed by Pouncey as by Baccio
Bandinegi and identified as a portrait of Michelangelo (see Card van Tuyll van Seeroskerken, Baccio
