Portrait

Today’s Featured Artist at the e.Gallery is a 15th Century artist, Gentile Massi [Italian, 1370?-?1427] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Fabriano_Gentile_da

Italian painter in the International Gothic style.
Originally named Gentile di Niccolo di Giovanni di Massio, he was
named after his birthplace, Fabriano in the Marches. He carried out
important commissions in several major Italian art centres and was
recognized as one of the foremost artists of his day, but most of the
work on which his great contemporary reputation was based has been
destroyed. It included frescos in the Doges’ Palace in Venice (1408)
and for St John Lateran in Rome (1427). In between he worked in
Florence, Siena, and Orvieto.
