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.

Bernardo Daddi (ca. 1280 - 1348) was an early Italian renaissance painter and apprentice of Giotto. He was also influenced by the Sienese art of Lorenzetti.

Daddi's birth date remains unknown. He is first mentioned in 1312. He focused on religious motifs and altarpieces. A triptych he painted in 1328 is in the Uffizi, and there are several panels in National Gallery of Art and the Walters Art Gallery.

Daddi became the leading painter of Florence during his generation. His last work dates from 1347, and it is believed he died the next year.
