Niccolò di Pietro Gerini
Late Gothic Master
Son of a painter and a follower of Giotto, Florentine native Niccolò di Pietro Gerini (c. 1340 – 1414) was aprolific if not very original painter, working mostly in his hometown, but never managed to have earned a nickname.
He often worked with Jacopo di Cione, the youngest brother of Orcagna] and Spinello Aretino. Their Coronation of the Virgin (1372) is in the Galleria dell’Accademia. Another version, painted for the demolished church of San Pier Maggiore, has gone to the National Gallery in London.
