Historical Artist - Francesco Botticini (1446 - 1498)

Born in Florence, Francesco Botticini is mostly remembered for his painting, Assumption of the Virgin. His work resembles that of his colleagues, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Lippi, and Verrocchio. He was born in Florence in 1446 and is mostly remembered for his painting entitled "Assumption of the Virgin". He established his own workshop after a brief period as Neri di Bicci's assistant; the shop was renowned for its decorative works, a few of which can be seen in the cloistered church of Empoli. Some of Botticini's works are said to be overshadowed by his Florentine contemporaries, such as Filippino Lippi and Botticelli, who often influenced Botticini's works.
