Pietro Perugino Paintings
About Pietro Perugino: Pietro Perugino (1446 - 1524) was the leading painter of the Umbrian school, who developed some of the qualities that found classic expression in the High Renaissance.Pietro Perugino was one of the earliest Italian practitioners of oil painting. The date of this first Florentine sojourn is by no means settled some make it as early as 1470, others push the date to 1479. According to Vasari, he apprenticed in the atelier of Andrea del Verrocchio alongside Leonardo da Vinci. He may have learned perspective from Piero della Francesca. In 1472 he must have completed his apprenticeship, for he was enrolled as a painter in the confraternity of St Luke.Some of his early works were extensive frescoes for the convent of the Ingesati fathers, destroyed during the siege of Florence, 1537 he produced for them also many cartoons, which they executed with brilliant effect in stained glass. A good specimen of his early style in tempera is the tondo (circular picture) in the Mus¨Ĥe du Louvre of the Virgin and Child Enthroned between Saints.If you need more Pietro Perugino Paintings, please tell us.
