Daddi

Daddi, Bernardo, fl. 1312-48, Italian painter of the Florentine school. First influenced by his contemporary Giotto, he soon adopted the delicate line and lyrical expression of the Sienese painters, especially the Lorenzetti. Among his dated works are a triptych (1328) in the Uffizi and an altarpiece (1333) in the Ospedale Bigallo, Florence. In the United States there are numerous paintings attributed to Daddi. These include panels of the Madonna and Child in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore; and the Gardner Museum, Boston.

(born circa 1290, Florence?—died circa 1355, Florence?) Italian painter. He became one of the leading painters in Florence after the death of his teacher, Giotto. He directed a busy workshop specializing in small devotional panels and portable altarpieces. His works include a triptych for the Church of Ognissanti (1328) and the polyptych Crucifixion with Eight Saints (1348). His style, a fusion of Giotto's seriousness and the lightness of Sienese art, featuring smiling Madonnas and abundant flowers and draperies, remained the dominant style of Florentine painting through the 14th century.
