Alonso Berruguete was a Spanish painter, sculptor and architect. He is considered to be the most important sculptor of Renaissance Spain, and known for his emotive sculptures depicting religious ecstasy or torment.

Born in the town of Paredes de Nava, Berrugete would study art under the tutelage of his father, the painter Pedro Berruguete. Following his father’s death in 1504, Berruguete travelled to Italy to continue with his study of art, spending most of his time in Florence and Rome. His paintings produced in Italy showed a mannerist influence, with his art being compared with contemporaries such as Jacopo Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino.

Berruguete returned to Spain in 1517 and in 1518 was appointed to the position of court painter and sculptor by Charles V of Spain. From here on, Berruguete concentrated on sculpture. Works of his include an altar piece at the Irish college in Salamanca (1529 – 32), choir stalls at the Cathedral of Toledo (1539 – 43) and a tomb for the Archibishop of Toledo Juan de Tavera at the hospital that Tavera founded, the hospital of St. John the Baptist in Toledo (1552 – 61).
