  1. An Old Man and his Grandson – Domenico Ghirlandaio (c1490)

  2. Domenico Ghirlandaio • Domenico Ghirlandaio (c.1449 - January 11, 1494) • In 1480, Ghirlandaio painted the Saint Jerome in His Study and other frescoes in the Church of Ognissanti, Florence, and a life-sized Last Supper in its refectory. From 1481 to 1485, he was employed on frescoes in the Sala dell Orologio of the Palazzo Vecchio. In 1483, Ghirlandaio was summoned to Rome by Pope Sixtus IV to paint a wall fresco in the Sistine Chapel, Christ calling Peter and Andrew to their Apostleship. His other works in Rome are now lost. Before 1485, he produced frescoes for Cappella di Santa Fina, in the Tuscan Collegiatadi San Gimignano which, after circa 1350, was under the rule of nearby Siena. His future brother-in-law, SebastianoMainardi, assisted him with these commissions in Rome and in San Gimignano. Back in Florence in 1485, Ghirlandaio painted fresco cycles in the Sassetti chapel of Santa Trinita for the donor and banker Francesco Sassetti, the powerful manager of the branch of the Medici bank in Genoa, a position subsequently filled by Giovanni Tornabuoni - Ghirlandaio's future patron.
