Antonio Pisanello

Antonio Pisano , known as “Pisanello” (Verona? c. 1395–1455), was a painter and medallist.

Having trained in the style of Gentile da Fabriano (whose frescoes he continued in the Doge’s Palace in Venice, 1415-22), he was also influenced by the Lombard school. He had an elegant fairytale-like style, developing to perfection the international Gothic formal style and a certain naturalism very similar to the contemporary Tuscan Renaissance style.

His major works include: the splendid fresco of St. George and the Princess (1429, Church of Sant’Anastasia in Verona); St. George, the Princess and the Dragon (1433-38, Palazzo Forti, Verona); Madonna della Quaglia (c. 1420, Civic Museum of  Castelvecchio, near Verona); Annunciation (1426, fresco in the Basilica of San Fermo Maggiore, Verona); St. Eustach’s Vision (1436-38, The National Gallery, London); Portrait of Princess d’Este (1436-38, Musee du Louvre, Paris).

Pisanello is also famous for his medals, considered the most beautiful in the history of Italian art for their carefully carved designs and delicate elegant relief.
