Paolo Uccello Portrait

Biography


Paolo di Dono is best known to us by his nickname, Uccello – “the bird”, the origin of which is unclear. Uccello was one of the most versatile founders of the Italian Early Renaissance, although his later reputation did not reflect his true significance, he went out of fashion during his lifetime and was only rediscovered in the XX century. He was originally apprenticed to Ghiberti, whom he assisted in the decoration of the paradise doors of the Florence baptistry. Nothing survives of his contribution to the mosaics of San Marco in Venice, but his frescoes of the Genesis in the Chiostro Verde of Santa Maria Novella in Florence (c. 1430) show that he was a follower of Ghiberti and that he was firmly rooted in the International Gothic style.
