Leonardo da Pistoia
Leonardo Grazia or Leonardo da Pistoia (1502 - ca. 1548) was an Italian painter of the Mannerist period. Born in Pistoia in Tuscany, he died in Naples. According to Bénézit, Grazia is often confused with Leonardo di Francesco di Lazzaro Malatesta (ca 1483 - after 1518), as both were known as Leonardo da Pistoia or Malatesta. In Naples, Leonardo Grazia was also known as Guido da Napoli and Guelfo dal Celano.
Grazia worked early on in Rome to work under Gianfrancesco Penni, also known as il Fattore. He was a copyist of Raphael paintings. He moved with Penni to Naples. There he painted for the churches of Santa Maria del Parto a Mergellina, San Domenico, and Monte Oliveto.
