Biagio delle Lame

also known as Biagio Pupini, 1511–1575, Bologna

Biagio Pupini studied under Francesco Francia in Bologna, after which he and a fellow student, Bartolomeo Ramenghi, known as Bagnocavallo, went to Rome, where Pupini was strongly influenced by Raphael and his school. Biagio was also a very productive draughtsman. Most of his efforts are pure study drawings, which the artist made for training purposes. After his return from Rome the artist worked mainly in Bologna and the Emilia Romagna and took part with such colleagues as Bagnocavallo and Girolamo da Carpi in the embellishment of ecclesiastical architecture in this region.
