Baccio (Bartolommeo) d'Agnolo Baglioni
architect, sculptor, and woodworker (intarsiatore); b. May 19, 1462; d. 1543.
The Baglioni conducted a Botega in Florence where many kinds of decorative work were done. The organ of the Church of S. Maria Novella (Florence), one of Baccio's earliest known productions, has been removed. The lower part, or "cantoria," is at the South Kensington Museum, London, the upper part in the Church of Rueil, near Paris. After 1495 he assisted II Cronaca, and later Antonio da San Gallo in the construction of the great hall of the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence. He built the Palazzo Bartolini (begun about 1520). Ascribed to him, also, are the villas Bartolini and Borgherini, and the Palazzi Ginori, Taddei, and Borgherini. In 1498 he became Capomœstro of the Palazzo Vecchio. He made a model for the façade of S. Lorenzo from the drawings of Michelangelo. In 1506-1515 he built a section of the cornice gallery of the dome of the Florentine cathedral, and in 1516, with Antonio da San Gallo, began the loggia opposite Brunellesco's Spedale degli Innoceitti.
