My 2013 post about the lady in the pink dress by Bugiardini (image below) prompted me to do some research into his life, but he seems to be a bit of a mystery!
Giuliano Bugiardini was also known as Giuliano di Piero di Simone. Although his very early career is uncertain, it is known that he apprenticed with Ghirlandaio. He was a member of the Painter's Guild and had a very small involvement in painting the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.

Portrait of a Woman (by Bugiardini)
I love the figured silk of her sleeve, the fine embroidery at the edge of her chemise, and the decorated headband.
