Andrea Del Castagno (1423-1457)

Andrea del Castagno, Italian painter of the Early Renaissance, who was born and died in Florence (1423 - 1457). He was active in Venice, where he painted "Dormition of the Virgin" (1443, Basilica di San Marco, Venice), "God the Father" (1442, San Zaccaria, Venice) and then in Florence, where he painted a series of portraits of "famous persons": "Pippo Spano", "Francesco Petrarca", and "Dante Allighieri" (1450, all hosted at the Uffizi, Florence).

Having been influenced by Masaccio and Donatello, Andrea del Castagno is known for his vigorous realism, and a special mastery of draughtsmanship by model, colours, and dramatic compositions. His "Last Supper" (1447, Sant Apollonia, Florence) is evidence of del Castagno's powerful skill.
