Italian painter. He was previously confused with three other painters: Andrea Utili ( fl 148196) of Faenza; Giovanni Battista Utili (?14651516), whose second family name was Bertucci, also of Faenza; and Benedetto Ghirlandaio. His true identity was first documented by Grigioni, and Golfieri and Corbara then linked archival references to surviving paintings. Lightbown excludes the suggestion that he is the Biagio apprenticed to Botticelli, who, according to Vasari, was the victim of a practical joke played by his master.
