But Andrea displayed far more genius in his John baptising the multitudes, some undressing, some receiving baptism, and some waiting their turn, already undressed, the expression of all being intense in their anxiety to be cleansed of sin, while all the figures are so excellently done that they resemble a marble group.
Andrea was suggested to him, among others, and although not knowing much of the matter, M. Baldo had almost made up his mind to employ him when one Niccolo Soggi, of Sansovino, who had friends in Prato, was recommended to M. Baldo and obtained the work, as they said no better master could be had.
Andrea's death was a great loss to the city and to art, because he improved steadily until his forty-second and last year, and would have continued so to do, because more certain progress is won thus gradually than by a spurt.

Andrea in all likelihood adhered to these values, and he not only applied them to his own life, but chose to restrict his relationships to men who shared them.
Andrea's relations with his religious patrons were similar, insofar as they were often effectuated through minor figures whom he knew personally, and for whom he worked with a felicitous lack of presumption.
Andrea del Sarto's preference for associating with those who shared his vision of the world is further demonstrated by his long relationship with Franciabigio which, though severed at the commercial level sometime around 1510, must surely have continued on the human plane - Vasari's insinuations of a definitive falling out notwithstanding.

 Andrea del Sarto Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
With Michelangelo and Raphael working in Rome, Andrea del Sarto became the leading painter in Florence following the death of Fra Bartolommeo in 1517, and through his pupils, II Rosso and Pontormo, he was a vital formative influence on the development of mannerism.
Between 1511 and 1526 Andrea painted the famous monochrome fresco cycle in the cloister of the Scalzo, Florence, which is one of the masterpieces of High Renaissance art.
Andrea may have visited Rome in 1519-1520 in connection with the important commission from Pope Leo X for the decoration of the Medici villa at Poggio a Caiano, near Florence, since Andrea's fresco Tribute to Caesar (dated 1521) at the villa strongly suggests a direct experience of Raphael's work in Rome.

 Biography
The epithet 'del sarto' (of the tailor) is derived from his father's profession; his real name was Andrea d'Agnolo di Francesco.
Andrea's reputation was largely made and marred by Vasari, who said that Andrea's works were 'faultless' but represented him as a weakling completely under the thumb of his wicked wife.
Andrea has suffered from being the contemporary of such giants as Michelangelo and Raphael, but he undoubtedly ranks as one of the greatest masters of his time.

 SparkNotes: Robert Browning's Poetry: "Andrea del Sarto"
Andrea del Sarto, like Fra Lippo Lippi, lived and worked in Florence, albeit a little later than Lippo, and was later appointed court painter by Francis, the King of France.
Andrea now finds himself in the twilight of his career and his marriage: Lucrezia's "Cousin"--probably her lover--keeps whistling for her to come; she apparently either owes the man gambling debts or has promised to cover his own.
Andrea blames his disappointing career on his inability to match his unparalleled technical skills with appropriate subject matter: all the Virgins he paints look like his wife, and he has never had the time at court to allow his work to blossom.

 Inspiration and Unrequited Love in Browning's "Andrea del Sarto"   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Even as del Sarto speaks confidently about his art, which is highly acclaimed, he is deeply burdened both by Lucrezia's lack of interest in his artistic creations, as well as by the fact that he is rapidly losing her love.
While del Sarto seems to be boasting of his artistic skill (lines 69-71 especially), his insecurity also comes through, as it becomes clear that Lucrezia is unimpressed with his virtuosity, even as he tries to draw her attention to the praise he elicits from others.
del Sarto desperately wants to believe that he is truly talented and self-inspired, but he is insecure about his abilities, and he worries that he is dependent onLucrezia in a way that other brilliant artists were not dependent on anyone.

Andrea knew that he must look for no help from her, and that he must paint in spite of the hindrances she placed in his way.
Andrea loved his wife too well to think of refusing her request, and the days of peace and plenty must come to an end.
So Andrea journeyed back to Florence, and when he was once again with his wife, his joy and delight in her were so great that he forgot all his promises, forgot even the king's trust, and allowed Lucrezia to squander all the money which was to have been spent on art treasures for King Francis.

 Andrea del Sarto: il volto dell'amore
Nel 1517 Andrea del Sarto dipinge la celebre Madonna delle Arpie (oggi nelle Gallerie degli Uffizi a Firenze), della quale l'opera della Galleria Borghese riprende il movimento avvitato dei corpi e il volto di Maria.
Andrea si reca presso quella sontuosa corte e vi resta un anno; poi si congeda da Francesco I che tenta di trattenerlo, promettendo, anzi giurando al sovrano di fare in breve ritorno portando con sé Lucrezia, sposata appena un mese prima di giungere in Francia.
Andrea torna finalmente a Firenze, da Lucrezia e non farà mai più ritorno in Francia nonostante le promesse fatte a Francesco I; l'ambiente culturale fiorentino è più congeniale alla propria opera e Lucrezia gli è vicina.

By returning to original sources, Natali succeeds in introducing a new Andre del Sarto (1486-1530), one whose brilliant and moving pictures leap off the pages with startling freshness.
Not so, says Natali, who argues instead that Andrea chose a simple but culturally vibrant life in a circle of like-minded friends--intellectuals and common folk who practiced material austerity and humility.

This portrait of Andrea del Sarto (1486-1531) was derived from a biography written by his pupil, Giorgio, Vasari, author of The Lives of the Painters.
Vasari's account seeks to explain why his Floretine master, one of the most skillful painters of the Renaissance, never altogether fulfilled the promise he had shown early in his career and why he had never arrived (in Vasari's opinion) at the level of such artists as Raphael.

By giving Lucrezia voice, I confront these issues both directly and implicitly, all the while establishing del Sarto’s wife as a complete and complex character, imbued with substance and conviction of her own.
His wife is presented as an impatient and irritated, although mature, woman, and her practical nature surfaces in the rhythm, as much as in the meaning, of her speech.
Finally, she mocks the self-satisfied contentment which Andrea has achieved by the end of his dialogue, after he has bemoaned his failures—and blamed a good deal of them on his wife.
