BERRUGUETE, Spanish family of artists
The painter Pedro Berruguete may have spent some time in Urbino in Italy in the late 1470s, though documentary evidence regarding this visit is confusing, and some of the Italian works attributed to him are also claimed to be by Justus of Ghent. His work was influential on painters of the Castilian school until the first quarter of the 16th century. Of Pedro's five sons, Alonso Berruguete was a sculptor and painter who spent his early years in Italy. He was the most important Spanish artist of the 16th century.
