Giuliano Bugiardini (born January 29, 1476 in Florence , † February 17, 1555 there ) was an Italian painter of the Renaissance .

Live and act

In Florence, the banker Lorenzo il Magnifico established the first European art school, Accademia dei Giardini Medicei di San Marco (short: Giardino di San Marco ), on the site of a former garden between the Palazzo Casino Mediceo di San Marco and the Palazzo Socci . Giuliano Bugiardini was accepted and taught by two painters; first by Domenico Ghirlandaio and then by Piero di Cosimo . At the Accademia, he made friends with Michelangelo and became one of his followers. Bugiardini worked for a long time with Mariotto Albertinelli and Fra Bartolommeo . But while Raffael and Andrea del Sarto , for example, initially oriented themselves towards Fra Bartolommeo, Giuliano Bugiardini later moved to his friend Michelangelo. He assisted him in painting the vaulted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel (1508–1512). Michelangelo gave him drawings as templates for his paintings.
