Quick Reference

(b Bologna; d Breda, 1534–6). Italian painter active in Italy, Flanders and Brabant. He is first mentioned in a document drafted in Rome in 1517. According to Vasari, he was a pupil of Raphael (1483–1520) and was among the artists who worked with him on the frescoes in the Vatican Logge. In 1520 he travelled to Flanders, carrying a letter of recommendation from Pope Leo X, to prepare cartoons for tapestries—to be woven in Brussels—for the Sala di Costantino and the Sala del Concistoro in the Vatican. In Flanders he met Dürer, who mentioned him in his Journal of Travels in the Low Countries (travels made between 1520 and 1521). Vincidor made a portrait of Dürer (untraced; copy by Willem van Haecht II (1593–1637), Antwerp, Rubenshuis).
