Portrait of a Woman, Called “The Nun”, 1506-1510

Also known as Giuliano di Piero di Simone, Giuliano Bugiardini was an Italian painter of the late-Renaissance period known as Mannerism and active mainly in Florence

The Madonna and Child with the Infant St. John the Baptist, 1515-1518

He may have initially apprenticed with a sculptor Bertoldo, but then apprenticed with the painter Domenico Ghirlandaio. In 1503, he joined the painter’s guild, the Compagnia di San Luca, and began an association with Mariotto Albertinelli that continued until 1509, when Albertinelli moved to the studio of Fra Bartolommeo. Bugiardini’s Virgin and Child can be seen in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Vasari mentioned Bugiardini assisted Michelangelo very briefly in 1508 with the painting of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He also worked in Bologna from 1526-1530. He painted a Rape of Diana, a Martyrdom of St Catherine for Santa Maria Novella in Florence, based on Michelangelo’s sketches, and also an altarpiece of Madonna with the Madgalen and St John the Baptist (c. 1540), which is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
