Jacopo Ligozzi

Jacopo Ligozzi

An accomplished Italian artist, Ligozzi (1547–1627) was himself the son of a prominent artist and part of a large family of painters and artisans. After a time in the Vienna court, where he displayed drawings of animal and botanical specimens, he was invited to be one of the court artists for the House of Medici, a prominent royal family in Florence. Late in life, he directed a workshop providing designs for artworks made mainly for export: embroidered textiles and the newly popular medium of pietre dure, mosaics of semiprecious stones and colored marbles.
