Gentile da Fabriano

Gentile da Fabriano
Years of life: 1370 – 1427
Art Movement: International Gothic
Painting School: Lombard School
Genre: Religious
Country: Italy
Century: XIV , XV

This Italian painter, born in Fabriano of the Marches, was the most accomplished exponent of the International Gothic style. He worked all over Italy, but most of his work was either lost or destroyed. His preference was to turn a work of art into a highly luxurious object, which is a characteristic of the International Gothic style (rather than a window on the world in the Renaissance). His works could almost be fabulous textiles woven with gold thread. The artist used traditional techniques, tooled gold with embossing, liked patterned textiles and static figures, but at the same time, he experimented with light, space, and composition.

Gentile da Fabriano’s major works are Virgin and Child Enthroned, c. 1395 (Berlin: Staatliche Museum); Coronation of the Virgin, 1420 (Los Angeles: J. Paul Getty Museum); Adoration of the Magi, 1423 (Florence: Galleria degli Uffizi); The Nativity, 1423 (Los Angeles: J. Paul Getty Museum).
