Giulio Romano

Giulio Romano

Giulio Romano was one of Raphael's most talented students, and with fellow student Gianfrancesco Penni continued to run his master's workshop after Raphael's death in 1520. He moved from Rome to Mantua in 1524 entering the service of Duke Federico II Gonzaga as court painter, designer and architect. Giulio Romano's technical skills and inventiveness were particularly expressed through his many drawings. He became a major exponent of the Mannerist style evident in his masterpiece for the Duke: the architecture and fresco decoration of the Palazzo del Te in Mantua.
