Sansovino, Jacopo
(1486-1570)
   Florentine architect and sculptor, born Jacopo Tatti. He was a pupil of Andrea Sansovino, whose surname he took when he followed his master to Rome in 1505. His early career was in Rome, but after the Sack of Rome by the imperial army in 1527 he settled in Venice, where he did his most important work. His most famous architectural work was the Bib-lioteca Marciana in Venice, which was begun in 1536 and completed a decade after Sansovino's death; it was praised by Andrea Palladio and subsequent critics because of its historically correct usage of the classical architectural orders.
