Giulio Pippi, called Romano after his birthplace, was Raphael's principal pupil and assistant. In 1524 he moved to the Gonzaga court at Mantua, where he was highly successful as a designer and architect as well as painter.

He shared Raphael's interest in the antique; he made drawings and designs from Roman relief sculpture, which influenced Poussin among others.
