Domenico di Pace Beccafumi (1486 – May 18, 1551) was an Italian Renaissance-Mannerist painter active  predominantly in Siena. He is considered one of the last undiluted representatives of the Sienese school of  painting.

Domenico was born in Montaperti, near Siena, the son of Giacomo di Pace, a peasant who worked on the estate  of Lorenzo Beccafumi. Seeing his talent for drawing, Lorenzo adopted him, and commended him to learn  painting from Mechero, a lesser Sienese artist. In 1509 he traveled to Rome, but soon returned to Siena, and  while the Roman forays of two Sienese artists of roughly his generation (Il Sodoma and Peruzzi) had imbued  them with elements of the Umbrian-Florentine Classical style, Beccafumi's style remains, in striking ways,  provincial. In Siena, he painted religious pieces for churches and of mythological decorations for private  patrons, only mildly influenced by the gestured Mannerist trends dominating the neighboring Florentine  school. There are medieval eccentricities, sometimes phantasmagoric, superfluous emotional detail and a  misty non-linear, often jagged quality to his drawings, with primal tonality to his coloration that  separates him from the classic Roman masters.

Pavement of Duomo di Siena

In addition to painting, he also directed the celebrated pavement of the cathedral of Siena from 1517–1544,  a task that took over a century and a half. The pavement shows vast designs in commesso work—white marble,  that is, engraved with the outlines of the subject in black, and having borders inlaid with rich patterns in  many colours. From the year Beccafumi was engaged in continuing this pavement, he made very ingenious  improvements in the technical processes employed, and laid down scenes from the stories of Ahab and Elijah,  of Melchisedec, of Abraham and of Moses. He made a triumphal arch and an immense mechanical horse for the  procession of the emperor Charles V on his entry into Siena.

Critical assessment and legacy

Compared to the equilibrated, geometric, and self-assured Florentine style, the Sienese style of painting  edges into a more irrational and emotionally-unbalanced world. Buildings are often transected, and  perspectives awkward. The setting is often hallucinogenic; the colors, discordant. For example, in the  Nativity (San Martino, Siena) hovering angels form an architectural hoop, and figures enter from the shadows  of a ruined arch. In his Annunciation, the Virgin resides in a world neither in day or dusk, she and the  Angel Gabriel shine while the house is in shambles. In Christ in Limbo (Pinacoteca, Siena), an atypically  represented topic, Christ sways in contraposto as he enters a netherworld of ruins and souls. S.J. Freedberg  compares his vibrant eccentric figures to those of the Florentine mannerist contemporary Rosso Fiorentino,  yet more "optical and fluid". While all the elements of the expected religious scenes are here, it is like a  play in which all the actors have taken atypical costumes, and forgotten some of their lines.

In Medieval Italy, Siena had been an artistic, economic, and political rival of Florence; but wars and  natural disasters caused a decline by the 15th century. Stylistically, Beccafumi is among the last in a line  of Sienese artists, a medieval believer of miracles awaking in Renaissance reality.
