Gentile da Fabriano (1370?-1427) by Scholes, Robert

Gentile da Fabriano (1370 – 1427) Originally named Gentile di Niccolò di Giovanni di Massio, he was named after his birthplace, Fabriano in the Marches. He carried out important commissions in several major Italian art centres and was recognized as one of the foremost artists of his day, but most of the work on which his great contemporary reputation was based has been destroyed. His major surviving work is the celebrated altarpiece of the Adoration of the Magi (Uffizi, Florence), painted for the church of Sta TrinitĂ  in Florence, which places him alongside as one of the greatest exponents of the International Gothic style in Italy.
