Francesco Pesellino

1422 - 1457
Francesco di Stefano was known as Pesellino, perhaps because he was taught by his grandfather Giuliano Pesello. He may have been a pupil of Fra Filippo Lippi, who certainly influenced him. Lippi completed Pesellino's altarpiece 'The Trinity with Saints' when it was left unfinished on his early death at the age of 35.

Pesellino was active in Florence around the middle of the century. In company with Piero di Lorenzo and Zanobi di Migliore he ran a workshop in the Corso degli Adimari (modern Via dei Calzaiuoli). 'The Trinity with Saints', which was commissioned in 1455, is his only documented work, though others are attributed to him.
