Giovanni di
Paolo
, in full Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia (born c.
1403, Siena, Republic of Siena [Italy] — died 1482, Siena),
painter whose religious paintings maintained the mystical intensity
and conservative style of Gothic decorative painting against the
trend, progressively dominant in the art of 15th-century Tuscany,
toward scientific naturalism and classical humanism. One of the
last practitioners of the tradition of medieval painting, he did
little to influence the course of art over the four centuries after
his death. In the 20th century, however, his tense, often highly
dramatic works aroused increasing interest.
