Benvenuto di Giovanni

1436 - after 1509/17

Born in Siena, Benvenuto di Giovanni is first recorded as an artist in 1453 when he was working with Vecchietta, who was probably his teacher, on the frescoes in the Siena Baptistery. He painted a number of altarpieces for churches in central Italy and provided the designs for the mosaic floor of Siena Cathedral. He also painted miniatures.
