Villa Farnesina, Peruzzi

Peruzzi (1481-1536) was an architect, a painter, and a draughtsman from Siena. He was an important transitional figure in the move from Early Renaissance to High Renaissance. The Villa Farnesina was built (1509-1521) originally for Agostini Chigi, but was later sold to the Farnese family.
