Pinturicchio was a serious representative of the Umbrian school of painting, strongly influenced by Perugino. A highly skilled, prolific, ambitious, he left many poetic, though not groundbreaking, works.

Pinturicchio was a master of fresco painting: hence he gives a particularly vivid sense of looking through the wall at a busy, bustling scene, full of incident. Pinturicchio’s direct realism, attention to detail, and love of storytelling allow you to believe you have walked into the daily life of Umbria in the XV-XVI century.

Pinturicchio’s major works are St. Catherine of Alexandria with a Donor, c. 1480–1500 (London: National Gallery); Borgia rooms frescoes, 1492–95 (Rome: Vatican); Virgin and Child between St. Jerome and St. Gregory the Great, c. 1502–08 (Paris: Musée du Louvre).
