PAINTINGS CENT. XV
Equally rich is the area of the Fifteenth century painting, which develops across an extensive and for many aspects detailed documentation of the two great cultural and stylistic matrices of Late Gothic and the Renaissance art, that spread in a parallel manner in Florence during the first thirty years of the fifteenth century. On the Late Gothic side stands out the world’s most important group of works by Don Lorenzo Monaco, a Camaldolese monk of the Convento di Santa Maria degli Angeli in Florence, great painter and miniaturist. Along with Gherardo Starnina he was the chief representative of the Late Gothic style in Florence. On the Renaissance side, there are great artists such as Paolo Uccello, Alesso Baldovinetti, Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Filippino Lippi.
