Master of the Albertini (Master of the Casole Fresco)

active early 14th century

This Sienese painter is so called after an extremely damaged fresco in the Collegiataat Casole in Val d'Elsa, near Siena. Stylistically the Master of the Albertini is a follower of Duccio and shows some influence of Pietro Lorenzetti. It has been suggested that he played a minor part in the painting of Duccio's 'Maestà', but there is no evidence of this.
