GIOVANNI DI PIETRO, UN PITTORE PISANO A GENOVA NEL PRIMO QUATTROCENTO. APPROFONDIMENTI, INEDITI E QUESTIONI DI CONTESTO

Clario Di Fabio

 

Born in Pisa, the painter Giovanni di Pietro is known only for his activity in Genoa between the Tre- and Quattrocento. This article reconsiders the totality of his oeuvre and all the documentary and epigraphic sources concerning his activity. It proposes new hypotheses about the original provenance, history, and iconography of paintings already known or presented here for the first time and it pays more precise attention to historic context, namely to his relations with local and foreign painters and the contemporary Genoese and Italian background.
