Giovanni Battista Naldini was a student of Jacopo Pontormo and Giorgio Vasari. He was active mostly in Florence, where he painted, among other things, the fresco with the pietà and putti on Michelangelo’s tomb. Several frescoes in Rome have survived as well.

This life-size Bathsheba dates from the 1570s and is now found in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg.
