Francesco Salviati

(b Florence, 1510; d Rome, 11 Nov 1563).

Italian painter and draughtsman. With Bronzino and Vasari he was a leading member of the generation of Florentine painters succeeding Jacopo Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino who developed a High Mannerist style of great elegance and complexity. His work includes paintings of mythological and religious subjects and portraiture as well as designs for tapestries and metalwork, but above all he is known as a creator of large-scale decorative schemes.
