CONTE Jacopino del (b. ca. 1515, Firenze, d. 1598, Roma) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter. A pupil of Andrea del Sarto, he appears to have worked independently from around the time of Andrea del Sarto's death in 1530 and to have specialized at first in devotional works of moderate size. In such paintings as the Virgin in the Clouds (Berlin, Staatliche Museen), the Holy Family (New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art) and the Virgin and Child (Florence, Galleria degli Uffizi) he imposed a Michelangelesque monumentality and sculptural density on figure compositions that are reminiscent of the warm intimacy of Andrea del Sarto's Holy Families.
