Abstract

This contribution discusses the career of the Bishop of Vaison at Rome in the first quarter of the sixteenth century and his important role as an art 'agent' for Pope Clement VII. It also outline how the Bishop's adherence to the faction at the papal court loyal the the Emperor Charles V helped advance both his own career and that of the artists he associated with, notably Sebastiano del Piombo.
