Giovanni di Paolo

Loading

""

Giovanni di Paolo was born in 1403 in Siena, Italy. He studied early Renaissance Italian painters and was potentially a pupil of Taddeo di Bartolo. To the dismay of emerging humanist artists, he painted a more traditional Gothic style his entire career. His art changed as he became more resentful of new art forms pushing him to irrelevancy. He painted religious subject matter. His most famous painting was an altarpiece of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, completed in 1449. He died in 1482. He drifted into obscurity until the 16th century when artists rediscovered his colorful art style and unique, geometrical approach to creating landscapes. These powerful visual features became a catalyst of a new art movement called Mannerism. Mannerism is an art style that focuses on exaggerated figures, emotions, lighting, and perspective. Giovanni di Paolo’s strong color choice also inspired the 20th-century art movement, Expressionism. Meta description: Giovanni di Paolo was a religious painter with a Gothic style. His art would later inspire multiple art movements in the future.
