Italian Renaissance sculptor to the Kings and Queens of England (that's his bust of King Henry VII above)
The V&A preserves Pietro's terracotta bust of Henry VII.
Torrigiano later moved to Spain, where his temper got in his way one last time. When the Duke of Arcus stiffed him on the payment for a commission, Torrigiano reportedly defaced the sculpture with his chisel. The Duke promptly denounced him as a heretic. Torrigiano died in prison in 1528.
