Giotto di Bondone

Giotto di Bondone Giotto di Bondone (1267-1337) was an Italian painter and architect. He broke away from the conventional Gothic style of the time, and had an enormous influence on subsequent Italian painting.

Short Biography:

Giotto was born in Vespignano, North of Florence. He introduced a naturalistic style, painting saints as real people. His most famous works are cycles of frescoes in churches at Assisi, Florence, and Padua. Giotto's figures occupy a definite pictorial space, and there is an unusual emotional intensity and dignity in the presentation of the story.

In one of the series of frescoes he painted for the Arena Chapel, Padua, he made the Star of Bethlehem appear as a comet (Halley's comet had appeared in 1303, just two years before).

From 1334 he was official architect to Florence, and from 1335 overseer of works at the cathedral; he collaborated with Andrea Pisano in decorating the cathedral facade with statues, and designing the campanile which was completed after his death.
