(b Florence, c.1449; d Florence, 11 Jan. 1494). Florentine painter. According to Vasari he trained with Baldovinetti and it has been suggested that he also spent some time in Verrocchio's workshop. His style was solid, prosaic, and rather old-fashioned (especially when compared with that of his great contemporary Botticelli), but he was an excellent craftsman and good businessman and had one of the most prosperous workshops in Florence.
