Italian painter, Sienese school. Taddeo, son of the barber
Bartolo di Mino, was under 25 in 1386 when he was first recorded,
painting statuettes of angels for the new choir-stalls in Siena
Cathedral. In 1388–9 he was a counsellor to the Cathedral Works and in
1389 he was first listed as an independent painter. His earliest dated
work is the polyptych of the Virgin and Child with Saints (1389;
sold London, Christie’s, 8 Dec 1950), painted for the chapel of S Paolo
at Collegarli, near San Miniato al Tedesco. The thin, elegant figures
and curvilinear drapery patterns show aspects of Taddeo’s early style to
be linked with the works of the preceding generation of Sienese
painters, and, like his contemporaries, he looked back to earlier models
by Simone Martini and the Lorenzetti.
