Florentine, c. 1530 - 1564
Related Content

Born around 1530 in Santa Maria in Bagno, nothing is known of the artist's career. He was a competent modeller, as seen in his best work, a cast medal of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici with a reverse of Hercules fighting.[1] He also signed a medal of Fernando Francesco II d'Avalos which forms the reverse of NGA 1957.14.911. A medal of Giambattista Castaldo has also been attributed to him.[2] Cesare died at Milan.
