Artist information:

Federico Zuccaro, also spelled Zuccari was an Italian painter and art theorist who became the central figure of the Roman Mannerist school and, after the death of Titian, possibly the best known painter in Europe. At the age of 18, Zuccaro was already working in the Vatican, painting various rooms for Pius IV. In 1564 he traveled to Venice to decorate the Grimani Chapel in San Francesco della Vigna with various paintings, including Adoration of the Magi and Conversion of Mary Magdalene.
