Daniele da Volterra


Daniele Ricciarelli (c. 1509 - April 4, 1566), better known as Daniele da Volterra, was an Italian mannerist painter and sculptor.

He is best remembered for his association, for better or worse, with the late Michelangelo. Several of Daniele's most important works were based on designs made for that purpose by Michelangelo. After Michelangelo's death Daniele was hired to cover the genitals in his Last Judgment with vestments and loincloths. This earned him the nickname "Il Braghettone" ("the breeches maker").
