The Italian painter Andrea del Sarto (whose original name was Andrea d’Agnolo di Francesco di Luca di Paolo del Migliore) was born on July 16, 1486 in Gualfonda, Florence, as the son of the tailor Angelo die Francesco, for which he received the epithet Sarto (= tailor). Del Sarto was a goldsmith apprentice. His drawing skills attracted the attention of an unknown artist, who instructed Andrea del Sarto in painting and later sent him to Piero di Cosimo. As his student, he was influenced by the great masters of High Renaissance.
