Furini's work reflects the tension faced by the conservative, mannerist style of Florence when confronting then novel Baroque styles. He is a painter of biblical and mythological set-pieces with a strong use of the misty sfumato technique. An important early work, Hylas and the Nymphs (1630), features six female nudes that attest to the importance Furini placed upon drawing from life.
Furini became a priest in 1633 for the parish of Sant'Ansano in Mugello. Furini traveled to Rome again in the year before his death in 1646. More on Francesco Furini
