Domenico Beccafumi

1484 - 1551

Beccafumi was, with Sodoma, the leading Sienese painter of the early 16th century. His works have a powerful sense of drama, and use striking effects of colour and lighting.

He is perhaps best known for his frescoes on themes from ancient history in the town hall of Siena. The panels in the Collection are also examples of interior decoration, probably from private wealthy homes.
