Cesare Dandini Italian

Not on view

Dandini largely continued a Florentine tradition of bold color contrasts and elegant, linear compositions. At least two Charity compositions are known by Dandini and his workshop, which frequently recycled the mother and child figures verbatim in other works in order to represent the Virgin and Christ. In Filippo Baldinucci’s biography of Dandini, he noted two paintings representing Charity with putti that remained unfinished in the artist’s workshop at his death, both completed by his brother, Vincenzo.
