Cimabue Paintings

Cimabue (c. 1240–1302), a.k.a. Benvenuto di Giuseppe, was a Florentine painter and mosaic maker. He is generally regarded as one of the first great Italian painters to deviate from the Italo-Byzantine style. Art from this period were comprised of forms and scenes that were highly stylized and relatively flat. Cimabue was an advocator of naturalism. His figures were conveyed in lifelike proportions and shading. Despite his favoring naturalism, his Maestà paintings contained Medieval styles and techniques. Learn more »
