Biography:
Painter and sculptor Daniele Ricciarelli was born in Volterra, Italy, thus acquiring his more popular name, Daniele da Volterra. It is assumed that he trained in Siena under Sodoma before moving to Rome in 1565. Here, he befriended Michelangelo who helped him increase his commissions and also created preparatory drawings for Daniele’s work. His most powerful work is the fresco of the Deposition, located in the Cappella Orsini in Saint Trinita dei Monti. This work was highly admired and copied by many great artists who studied in Rome, including Domenichino and Rubens. Daniele is also recognized for his bust of mentor Michelangelo that was created from the master’s death mask. In addition, he was forced by the Counter-Reformation to paint draperies over Michelangelo’s nude figures in the Last Judgement.
