Pellegrino di Mariano

Siena act. 1449 - 1492
Price range
500,000 – 1,000,000 USD
Pellegrino is a member of the quattrocento Sienese school of painting and studied with Giovanni di Paolo who ran the most successful workshop there.

Pellegrino di Mariano was a notable miniaturist, like his Florentine contemporary Lorenzo Monaco (ca. 1370–1425), and produced decorated choir books for the Sienese Pope Pius II for the Cathedral in Pienza and the Duomo in Siena. Paintings such as the signed and dated 1490 Madonna and Child with Saints in the Brooks Museum, Memphis show with their elongated forms and pointy physiognomies the influence of Giovanni di Paolo. However, as his career moved forward Pellegrino’s style comes increasingly close to that of his contemporary, Sano di Pietro (ca. 1465–70).
