Like his father Alessandro Allori, Cristofano Allori was also a great Italian portrait artist of the late Florentine Mannerist school.

Cristofano was born in Florence on Oct 17 1577.  While he was young, he studied art under his father and then went to Gregorio Pagani's studio to keep learning art. It is said that Cristofano worked under Cigoli too.

Cristofano Allori's paintings are recognized by the close compliance to nature and also the goody and specialized excellence in their performance. The oil painting reproductions of Correggio's paintings made by Cristofano were believed to be done by Correggio himself. Some example artworks can be found at Florence.

The most famous of Allori's artwork is Judith with the Head of Holofernes.
