Zuccaro, Federico

Sant'Angelo in vado, Le Marche, 1540/41 - Ancona, Le Marche, 1609

He was taught by his older brother Taddeo (1529-1566) in Rome, where he helped him on a number of decorative projects in the city. After a short visit to Venice, he was in Florence in the mid-1560s, becoming a member of the Florentine Accademia del Disegno. On the death of Taddeo in 1566, he returned to Rome, where for a while he was occupied completing a number of commissions started by his brother. After travelling to the Netherlands (1574) and England (1575), Federico settled in Florence, where he completed the frescoes in the cupola of the Cathedral, begun by Vasari (1511-1574). While in Florence he decorated his own house in Via Capponi and instigated proposals for the reorganization of the Florentine academy. In 1580 he returned to Rome, but worked in Venice (1582), Loreto (1583), and again in Rome (from 1583). From 1585-88/89 he was in Spain, where his work for Philip II had not been held in esteem. After returning to Rome, he travelled extensively in Northern Italy from 1603 until his death (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 130).
