Mariotto di Nardo

Last of the Gothics

Crucifixion Triptych

Son of the painter Nardo di Cione, and nephew of Andrea Orcagna, Mariotto (1365-1424) is a transitional figure between the International Gothic and the early Renaissance. Not a challenging artist, the directness and simplicity of his religious painting nevertheless made him quite popular in his day.

Works in the Sacristy of Santa Maria Novella, Santa Maria Maggiore, San Donnino a Villamagna at Bagno à Ripoli, the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, and the Accademia. Much of his best work is in private collections and museums around the world.
