Masaccio (1401-1428) was a painter of the early Italian Renaissance. He is considered the best painter of his time because of his skill at recreating lifelike figures and movements as well as a feeling of 3 dimensions. He profoundly influenced the art of painting in the renaissance and directed the art style away from Gothic art to a more humanistic world. He had a brief life span of only 26 years. One of his early works, San Giovenale Triptych shows signs of portraying a 3D effect by foreshortening of some forms and portrays volumetric figures. Another well known piece, The Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, had an impact on other painters including Michelangelo. Our Masaccio pattern set collection contains much of his works including Young Man, The Tribute Money, The Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, Stories of St. Julian and St. Nichols, Adoration of Magi, Crocifissione Napoli, The Madonna and Child with St. Anne, San Giovenale Triptych, St. Peter Healing the Sick with his Shadow, and Raising of the Son of Theophilus and St. Peter Enthroned. There’s also a self portrait of Masaccio.
