Sodoma (Italian painter, 1477-1549)

Note: Sodoma dominated Sienese painting and worked successfully throughout Italy. He was a shoemaker's son; after learning the rudiments of painting in his hometown, he saw Leonardo da Vinci's art in Milan around 1497 and soon incorporated his sfumato effects. Sodoma lived in Siena for about eight years, then went to Rome in 1508, where he frescoed a ceiling at the Vatican. By 1529 Sodoma was a kind of official painter to the Sienese Republic. Eight years later he was working beyond its borders, but he resettled there around 1545. Italian painter.
