Bartolomeo Di Giovanni Biography | Oil Painting Reproductions

7-4-1488 Florence, ITA - 6-8-1501 Florence, ITA

Bartolomeo di Giovanni was documented throughout history as Alunno di Domenico, which implies Pupil of Domenico, as in Domenico Ghirlandaio. This name was concocted by Bernard Berenson for the Florentine painter to whom he credited the majority of the designs for Florentine woodcut book illustrations of the late fifteenth century. Bartolomeo di Giovanni was a talented artist in Ghirlandaio’s workshop. He is most famous for his contributions to Ghirlandaio’s commission at the Ospedale Degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), a children’s orphanage in Florence in 1488. The work Ghirlandaio commissioned Giovanni for in 1488, was for the predella panels for the altarpiece, Adoration of Magi. It is also rumored that Giovanni also trained some under Sandro Botticelli.

It has since been noted, that he also made an impression working on Ghirlandaio’s commission from Pope Sixtus IV for a wall fresco in the Sistine Chapel. The Ghirlandaio piece is titled, Christ Calling Peter and Andrew to their Apostleship. Bartolomeo di Giovanni had a unique style that distinguished his work from Ghirlandaio, calling it intense, almost in the style of the Nordic Painters and that of Florentine artist, Piero Di Cosimo.
