Biography

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'.
