Biography

This Italian artist, whose precise identity has not yet been discovered, was named by art historians after an altarpiece once in the church of S.Lucchese, Poggibonsi, south of Florence. Other works made in a similar style have been attributed to the same painter. These pictures suggest that he was influenced by the Florentine artist Maso di Banco, and that he was active from about 1350 to 1420.
