Francesco di Vannuccio (active between: 1356 - 1389)
  • Place of Birth: Siena, Italy
Biography
Works of Art

A Sienese master whose single documented work is an altarpiece in Berlin Dahiem signed FRANCISCHUS DE VANNUCIO DE SENIS PINSIT HOC OPUS MCCCLXXX. Cecchi has reasonably identified him as the Francio di Vannuccio documented as a painter in Siena between 1361 and 1389.

The corpus of work attributed to him (first assembled by Brandi and Offner) reflects the influence of Simone Martini, probably transmitted through Andrea Vanni and Bartolo di Fredi; Offner noted his 'child-like and playful fantasy' and his whimsically small figures touched with humour.
