Vaga, Perino del

(c. 1500-1547)
   Perino del Vaga was among those responsible for establishing the Mannerist style in Rome where he worked for a while as one of Raphael's assistants. He was originally from Florence, where he studied with Andrea de' Ceri and later Ridolfo, the son of Domenico del Ghirlandaio. Perino's style owes debt to Michelangelo from whose works he drew while both in Florence and Rome. His most notable work is the Fall of the Giants (beg. 1529) in the Sala dei Giganti (Room of the Giants) of the Palazzo del Principe, Genoa, commissioned by Andrea Doria who in 1528 established himself as the dictator of the Genoese Republic. Since Doria's palace was damaged by fire in 1527, Perino was also charged with the architectural renovations. There, a number of artists worked as his assistants, including Giovanni Antonio de Sacchis, called il Pordenone, and Domenico Beccafumi.
