Piero Pollaiuolo

Brother of Antonio

Temperance by Piero del Pollaiolo

Piero (1443–96) occasionally worked with his more talented brother Antonio Pollaiuolo, his elder by ten years, and reputedly carried out dissections in their study of anatomy. He was a student of Andrea del Castagno but unlike his brother, stuck with painting. Works in the Uffizi.
