Peter de Witte, called Pietro Candido, or Peter Candid. Florentine School. Born c. 1548; died 1628. Born probably in Bruges, he settled before 1568 in Florence, where his style was formed under the influence of Michelangelo and Vasari, especially while working with the latter. The style acquired under these influences was retained throughout his career, even in the paintings executed after his permanent removal to Munich, in 1586.
