Benozzo Gozzoli – Italian Renaissance Painter

Benozzo Gozzoli (c. 1421 – 1497) was an Italian Renaissance painter. Although his art doesn’t rival his contemporaries in terms of elevation or strength, his works are attractive because of the rich, lively, and abundant aspects of subjects and objects. In his many frescos, he used bright, vivacious and festive colors. He is best known for a series of detailed murals in the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi depicting festive, vibrant processions. These include the frescos of the Magi in the Magi Chapel, the Journey of the Magi to Bethlehem and a composition of Angels in Paradise. He included a self portrait in the procession. Our pattern set for Benozzo Gozzoli contains many of his recognized works, both in their entirety and also details.
