Comments

Like many artisans of the time, Rossellino worked with family members, other artists, and craftsmen to create art. He was a Florentine artist who developed a highly personalized style of portraiture by way of harmonious and technical objectives. His use of decoration, skill, and poise are clearly defined in his portraits.
