Giotto

life

Giotto (Giotto di Bondone; c.1266–c.1337), Florentine painter and architect. Profoundly influential for many generations, he painted monumental figures dramatically and emotionally, giving the vast fresco scenes a sense of movement and spatial depth. Among his famous works are frescoes in Padua (Life of the Virgin, 1303–06), and Florence (St. John the Baptist, and Life of St. Francis, c.1320).
