Apollonio di Giovanni

1415/17 - 1465

Apollonio di Giovanni was recorded by 1446 as head of a Florentine workshop which specialised in paintings for Cassoni and other such furniture. He worked in partnership with Marco del Buono Giamberti, whose son, also a painter, became Apollonio's heir. Apollonio was also active as a painter of miniatures. His mature work displays the influence of Domeninco Veneziano.
