Masaccio Biography

Tommaso di Ser Giovanni di Simone Guidi Cassai called Masaccio is ranked the greatest master of the Early Italian Renaissance painting.

Little is known about his training. Decisive to his development were the great Florentine sculptors Donatello and Nanni di Banco, the paintings of Giotto, to whom he was a true heir, and the early works of Brunelleschi.
