The Early Renaissance




 

 


Pietro Perugino
 
 
 

 

 

Perugino [Vannucci, Pietro di Cristoforo]
 

(b Citta della Pieve, c. 1450; d Fontignano, ?Feb 1523).
Italian painter and draughtsman. He was active in Perugia, Florence and Rome in the late 15th century and early 16th. Although he is now known mainly as the teacher of Raphael, he made a significant contribution to the development of painting from the style of the Early Renaissance to the High Renaissance. The compositional model he introduced, combining the Florentine figural style with an Umbrian use of structure and space, was taken up by Raphael and became widely influential throughout Europe.
