Pietro Cavallini - Italian Artist From Art History

Historical Artist - Pietro Cavallini (1716 - 1799)

Pietro Cavallini worked mostly in Rome as a painter and mosaic designer. He is credited with two mosaics, Life of the Virgin and Last Judgment, located in Rome. In 1308, he was summoned to Naples by Charles II of Anjou. According to the records of his son, Cavallini lived to 100 years. In Florence, the influence of classical Roman forms combined with the Byzantine artistic heritage of the region to spark an interest in volumetric, naturalistic paintings and statuary. This work is in stark contrast to the comparatively flat and ornamented Gothic, International Gothic, and Byzantine styles.
