Domenico Ghirlandaio was an Italian Renaissance painter born in Florence. Ghirlandaio was part of the so-called “third generation” of the Florentine Renaissance, along with Verrocchio, the Pollaiolo brothers and Sandro Botticelli. Ghirlandaio led a large and efficient workshop that included his brothers Davide Ghirlandaio and Benedetto Ghirlandaio, his brother-in-law Bastiano Mainardi from San Gimignano, and later his son Ridolfo Ghirlandaio. Many apprentices passed through Ghirlandaio's workshop, including the famous Michelangelo. Ghirlandaio's particular talent lay in his ability to posit depictions of contemporary life and portraits of contemporary people within the context of religious narratives, bringing him great popularity and many large commissions.
The reverse of the coin shows the wonderful reproduction of the painting by Domenico Ghirlandaio. The obverse of the coin presents the Coat of Arms of Cameroon and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” - the issuing country, “2017” – the year of issue and “500 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
