Grifo di Tancredi

Italian (Florentine) (documented 1271 - 1312)
Grifo di Tancredi Triptych. Centre: Scenes from the Lives of the Thebaid Saints. Wings: Scenes from the Passion of Christ about 1290 - 1300


Nationality Italian (Florentine)

The identity of this artist has recently been proposed by linking the fragmentary and much abbreviated inscription on the base-block of the triptych with several documentary references to an artist of this name in Tuscany, the earliest in Volterra in 1271 and all of the others in Florence. A small number of works by this hand had previously been grouped together under the name of the 'Master of San Gaggio'.
