Neroccio di Bartolommeo
 

(b Siena, 1447; d Siena, 1500).

Italian painter and sculptor. Born into the noble Sienese family of Landi del Poggio, he probably learnt painting and sculpture from Lorenzo di Pietro, called il Vecchietta, the teacher of almost all Sienese artists of the second half of the 15th century. Neroccio is first documented in 1461 when he was employed as a garzone (‘shop boy’) with the Cathedral Works of Siena. By 1468 he was working independently and completed his first documented commissions, a panel for Fra Giovanni, a certain rector of the Compagnia di S Girolamo, and a polychrome terracotta of the saint for the same confraternity
