PROPERTY OF A DESCENDANT OF HUGO PERLS
Agnolo appears to have been the better known of the two brothers and was mentioned by Vasari as having trained in the workshop of Cosimo Rosselli, though it seems likely Donnino also received his training there. Agnolo was among the artists summoned by Michelangelo to Rome in 1507-1508 to confer over plans for the decoration of the Sistine chapel, which is testament to both his skill and renown among his contemporaries. Vasari himself, in fact, owned a number of Agnolo's drawings, some of which he included in his Libro de' Disegni. Distinguishing between the hands of the brothers has proved difficult since the two collaborated on many of their documented commissions.
