Portrait of Simonetta Vespucci (c.1480) Oil on panel, 57 x 42 cm Musée Condé, Chantilly
Piero di Cosimo (also known as Piero di Lorenzo) (1462-1521) was an Italianpainter. The son of a Florentinegoldsmith, he apprenticed under Cosimo Rosseli, whom he assisted in the decoration of the Sistine Chapel. He was noted for his rather eccentric personality and unorthodox interpretations of mythological subjects. He also wrote a relatively famous treatise on geometry. Piero's students included Andrea del Sarto. He was found dead at the foot of a flight of stairs.
Piero de' Medici (the Gouty), Italian Piero "il Gottoso" (1416 â€“ December 2, 1469), was the de facto ruler of Florence from 1464 to 1469, during the Italian Renaissance.
Piero was born in Florence, the son of Cosimo de' Medici the Elder and Contessina de' Bardi.
Piero was warned by Giovanni Bentivoglio, and was able to escape the coup, in part because his son Lorenzo discovered a road-block set up by the conspirators to capture Piero in his trip towards the Medici villa at Careggi; he was not recognized, and was able to warn his father.
