Andrea da Firenze. (Andrea di Bonaiuto)

( fl 1346; dFlorence, after 16 May 1379).

Italian painter. From January 1346 Andrea was registered in the Arte dei Medici e Speziali in Florence. The earliest paintings that can be attributed to him suggest that he must have formed a close association with the workshop of Andrea di Cione. The small portable triptych of the Virgin and Child with Saints and Angels  shows the influence of Maso di Banco and of the painter of the Strozzi Chapel frescoes in the Chiostrino dei Morti, S Maria Novella, Florence.
