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.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Giovanni di Paolo


Portrait

Today’s Featured Artist at the e.Gallery is a 15th Century artist of the Early Renaissance movement, Giovanni di Paolo [Italian, 1400-1482] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Paolo_Giovanni_di

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.
