Gentile da Fabriano Biography

Gentile di Niccolò di Giovanni Massi, born in Fabriano in the Italian Marches, was the son of a cloth merchant. He became a major Italian figure in the International Gothic style. No doubt he must have encountered Sienese art at an early age, but all evidence suggests that he was trained in the great cultural centers of Milan and Verona.
