Italian painter and draughtsman, actually Jacopo Chimenti. He lived and worked in Florence all his life, and he followed Santi di Tito in the return to the clarity of the Florentine High Renaissance. He absorbed the ideas of his more innovative contemporaries and became one of the most popular painters of altarpieces for churches in Florence and Tuscany. He was also a distinguished still-life
painter and received many commissions from private patrons, among them the Medici. Empoli s painting is distinguished by simple, lucid forms, strong colour and direct and clear interpretation of the subject.
