Jacopo Pontormo Biography(b. 1494, Pontormo, d. 1557, Firenze)
(Pontormo, 1494-Florencia, c. 1556) Pintor italiano. Alumno de Andrea del Sarto en Florencia, influido por Miguel Ángel y después, a través de los grabados de Durero, por el estilo nórdico. Sus principales obras son: la decoración de la gran sala de la villa Poggio, en Caiano, cerca de Florencia (Vertumno y Pomona, 1520-1522); el claustro de la cartuja de Galuzzo (ciclo de La Pasión); El descendimiento de la cruz de Santa Felicità de Florencia (1526), una de sus mejores obras; La cena de Emaús; José en Egipto y numerosos retratos de expresiones muy originales. Después de 1545, fue encargado de la decoración del coro de San Lorenzo (Florencia); esta obra, intrincada y poco monumental, no tuvo éxito (fue destruida en el s. XVIII).
Jacopo Carucci (sometimes
spelled Carrucci) and called Pontormo, was
an influential artist in the 16th century
style of Mannerism and also as a precursor
to the later Baroque period. His training,
though sometimes brief, gave him a sweeping
influence of the time, including teachers
such as Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519), Mariotto Albertinelli (1474 – 1515),
di Cosimo (1462 – 1522) and prominently with
Andrea del Sarto (1486 – 1531). Jacopo da
became an important influence on his
prominent pupil, Il Bronzino (1503 – 1572).
Over the door of the company of la
Cecilia, on the hill of Fiesole, Jacopo Carucci did a
St. Cecilia in fresco, holding roses, one of
the most beautiful frescoes in existence.
When Maestro Jacopo, the Servite friar, had
seen these Jacopo da Pontormo paintings, his desire was greatly kindled, and he hoped to get
finish the cloister, thinking that the
competition with the other masters who had
worked there would spur him to produce
something extraordinarily fine. Jacopo did a
Visitation in a manner somewhat more elegant
than his wont, being moved as much by his
desire for honour and glory as for gain.
This gave Pontormo art much greater beauty, for
the women, children, youths and old men are
rendered so charming, in such harmonious colouring, that it is a marvel. The
flesh-colouring of a boy seated on some
steps and that of all the other figures is
such that it cannot be surpassed for
softness. By these and other Pontormo paintings
he took rank beside Andrea del Sarto
andFranciabigio, who had laboured there.
Jacopo Pontormo finished the task in 1516, only receiving 16 crowns for it.
|The duke having brought to Florence the Flemings Giovanni Rosso and Niccolo, 15 excellent masters of arras, to teach the art to the Florentines, directed that gold and silk hangings should be made for the council chamber of the Two Hundred, at a cost of 60,000 crowns, and that Jacopo and Bronzino should prepare cartoons of the history of Joseph. Jacopo having done one of the Death of Joseph announced to Jacob, and another of Joseph and Potiphar's wife, the duke and the masters did not like them, thinking them strange and unsuitable for the medium, and so Jacopo did no more. Returning to his accustomed painting, he did a Madonna, presented by the duke to Don, who took it to Spain. The duke, following in the footsteps of his ancestors, has always sought to decorate his city, and Jacopo Pontormo now resolved to paint the principal chapel of the magnificent church of S. Lorenzo, erected by Cosimo de' Medici the elder.|
|However, the painting is not in his usual style, and everyone feels it to be without measure, the torsos being mostly large and the legs and arms small, not to speak of the heads, which lack that singular grace and excellence which Jacopo Carucci used to give and which afford such pleasure in other Pontormo paintings.|
|Under Jacopo Jacopo Pontormo made considerable progress in design, and excited the highest expectations. his friends: especially at the end of his life, were Pierfrancesco Vernacci and Don Vincenzio Borghini, with whom Pontormo relaxed occasionally and dined with them. But Jacopo Carucci always cherished a great affection for Bronzino, who returned it, being grateful for the benefits received. Jacopo had strange notions, and was so fearful of death that Jacopo da Pontormo never allowed it to be mentioned, and Jacopo Carucci avoided dead bodies. He never went to feasts or to other places where crowds collected for fear of being crushed, and Pontormo was solitary beyond belief. Sometimes when he went to work he would fall into such deep thought that Jacopo da Pontormo came away at the end of the day without having done anything but think.|
