Dolci, the major Florentine painter of the 17th century, enjoyed an international reputation in his own lifetime. He was a gifted portrait painter and painted a number of large altarpieces, but his reputation is largely based on his half-length, single-figure paintings, characterized by their intense religiosity and meticulous technique, [1] and by his soft colour, and strong contrasts of light and dark.
