    • Antonio Pollaiuolo is also known as Pollaiolo or Pollajuolo. In Florence, in the second part of the 15th century, he and his brother Piero (c.1441-96), ran one of the most successful workshops in the city. They worked as painters, sculptors, engravers, goldsmiths and designrs of embroidery, and their knowledge of anatomy and the new technique of oil-painting, together with the study they made of the problems of representing violent action, placed them at the head of the scientific painters immediately preceding Leonardo.

      It is now generally accepted that all the best work was done by Antonio, and all the bad by Piero. What is also accepted is that the pair were heavily influenced by Donatello and Andrea del Castagno.
