Francesco da Sangallo

(1494 - 1576)

Florentine sculptor and medalist, son of the architect Giuliano da Sangallo. He went to Rome with his family in 1504 and is said to have been trained by Andrea Sansovino, whom he resembles little. Sangallo's medals are large and heavily modeled in high relief. See Forrer 5, pp. 324-31; U. Middeldorf in ThiemeBecker 29, pp. 404-06; U.
