Giotto di Bondone is an Italian painter and architect, born in Vespignano, near Florence. The most innovative artist of his time, Giotto was described by Dante as the foremost painter, displacing the elder Cimabue in fame and fortune. Posterity, however, has seen Giotto in stronger terms, as the revolutionary who altered the course of painting in Western Europe, striking out of the Gothic and Byzantine styles towards the Renaissance.
            At the age of 10, Giotto was supposedly found by Cimabue (1240-1302), who took him to Florence to study art. His earliest work may have been connected with the making of mosaics for the Florence Baptistry. Read Giotto's Full Biography
