Early Renaissance   •   Benozzo di Lese di Sandro Gozzoli @ Wikipedia

The Renaissance was the golden age of fresco painting. One of their most important representatives is Benozzo di Lese di Sandro Gozzoli, born in 1420 in Florence. He was a student of Fra Angelico, with whom he also worked on the papal commission, before he began at the age of 29 years to carry out independent orders. Gozzoli was one of the most prolific fresco painters of his time. Mainly active in Rome, Tuscany and Umbria.

The works of Gozzoli are characterized by a wealth of detail, vivid portraits and the relation to nature that emerged in the early Renaissance, the latter mainly through the strikingly realistic depiction of landscapes. In the pictures - as usual for the time - are treated almost exclusively religious topics. These include in particular scenes from the Bible, such as the Tower of Babel, the Assumption of Mary or the destruction of Sodom.

His main work, entitled "Scenes from the Old Testament," is a 25-part series of frescoes in which he worked for a total of 16 years. In 1944 it almost completely fell victim to the war. In addition to a variety of frescoes Gozzoli created various paintings and panel paintings. He enjoyed a high reputation during his lifetime and reached great prosperity. After his death in 1478, he was buried as a token of honor in the church of San Domenico in Pistoia near Florence. © Meisterdrucke
