Matteo di Giovanni

1430-1495 Italy/Early Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Matteo di Giovanni, the son of a tinman, was born in Borgo San Sepolcro. He lived in Siena where Lorenzo di Pietro, known as Vecchietta, influenced him strongly. Antonio del Pollaiuolo, and possibly his younger brother Piero, also influenced Matteo's work. In 1465, he painted the wings of Piero della Francesca's polyptych, the Baptism of Christ. His most noted works were three variants of the Massacre of the Innocents, two of which are in Siena and the third in Naples. He gained the reputation as being the best Sienese painter of his generation and referred to as Matteo da Siena.
