The Archangel Raphael with Tobias


Michele Tosini was called Michele di Ridolfo after his master Ridolfo Ghirlandaio (1483-1561). His works may be identified by their strongly Mannerist style, characterized by elongated figures that sway rhythmically in "contrapposto" arrangements, wrapped in fluttering drapery and having long, lax fingers. This picture has also been attributed to Alessandro Allori (1535-1607).
