Active in the Veneto Region ca. 1400
‘Maestro di Lonigo’ is the conventional given to an artist whose principal surviving work is an altarpiece in the church of Lonigo, a town near Padova. Although his identity has remained unknown, a group of paintings closely related to the altarpiece in Lonigo all show striking similarities and have therefore allowed a precise identification of this artist’s distinctive style.
This is idiom rooted in the late-Gothic ‘International Style’ practiced in the Veneto by artists such as Paolo and Antonio Veneziano.
