Giotto Paintings

Giotto di Bondone (1267-1337), or simply, Giotto, was one of the earliest Italian Renaissance painters. He was well known for his frescos and his artistic contributions to architecture. Giotto carefully observed subjects from life and translated those observations into his paintings. This marked the start of artists moving away from stylization and towards a more realistic representation of the world around them. The frescoes that he painted inside the Arena Chapel in Padua are considered to be one of the most important masterworks of his time.
