Masolino

Masolino

orig. Tommaso di Cristoforo Fini

(born 1383, Panicale, Romagna—died probably 1440–47, Florence, Republic of Florence) Italian painter. He came from the same district in Tuscany as his younger contemporary Masaccio, with whom his career is closely linked. The two worked together on frescoes for the Brancacci Chapel in Florence's Santa Maria del Carmine. Masaccio's influence is evident in Masolino's contributions, but upon Masaccio's death Masolino returned to the more decorative Gothic style of his earlier years.
