"Apollo and Daphne" by Antonio Pollaiuolo

Antonio di Jacopo Pollaiuolo (c.1432-1498) was an Italian painter, sculptor and goldsmith during the Renaissance. His brother was the artist Piero Pollaiuolo and the two frequently worked together. Their work shows both classical influences and an interest in human anatomy; reportedly, the brothers carried out dissections to improve their knowledge of the subject. Pollaiuolo's students included Sandro Botticelli.

Pollaiuolo's work includes:
