Antonio Pisanello (di Puccio Pisano) (Italian, 1395 - 1455)
Pisanello was one of the most celebrated and multi-talented artists of his day. His paintings ranged from large decorative frescoes (many of which have been destroyed or damaged) to small elegant portraits that combined closely observed natural detail with a strong sense of pattern. He is now best known for his drawings and portrait medals. Originally from Pisa, Pisanello trained in Verona and then completed fresco projects begun by Gentile da Fabriano in Venice and Rome. He travelled throughout Italy and was employed at the Renaissance courts of Mantua, Ferrara and Naples.
