Domenico Ghirlandaio died on this day in 1494 in Florence. He was about 45 years old. Domenico led one of the busiest workshops in late fifteenth-century Florence, producing portraits, altarpieces, and narrative frescoes for the city’s leading patrons. Though Vasari characterized him as unconcerned with financial affairs, documents reveal that he was a shrewd businessman with considerable material wealth and property. His brothers Davide and Benedetto and son Ridolfo were active as painters in Florence through the middle of the 16th century.
