Description de l’éditeur
Cimabue is perhaps best known as the instructor of the renowned painter Giotto. Cimabue is also famous for his Madonnas, one of which was stolen from a private collection in Hartford, Connecticut in October 1907. Aside from his home in Florence Cimabue actively painted in Padua, Pisa and Assisi. Giotto was patronized by a Paduan moneylender named Enrico degli Scrovegni. In 1301 Cimabue painted the apse cathedral in Pisa. In 1303 his pupil, Giotto, completed the beautiful frescoes that adorn the walls of a small chapel in Pisa. The frescoes vividly illustrate the lives of the Virgin and Jesus Christ.
