Masolino da Panicale

(mäzōlē`nō dä pänēkä`lā), 1383–c.1447, Florentine painter of the early Renaissance, whose real name was Tommaso di Cristoforo Fini. His versatile painting incorporated his feeling for decorative color with strong modeling and spatial organization. He was admitted (1423) to the apothecaries' guild in Florence, in which painters were enrolled, and was soon commissioned to paint the frescoes in the Brancacci Chapel in Florence. These were continued by his pupil Masaccio upon Masolino's departure (1427) for Hungary and were completed by Filippino Lippi, thus greatly complicating the question of authorship; currently scholars attribute to Masolino St. Peter Preaching, St. Peter Healing the Cripple, The Raising of Tabitha, and The Fall of Adam and Eve. Upon his return to Florence, Masolino found painters occupied with problems of perspective, light and shade, and classical architecture and decoration, ideas that he utilized while retaining much of the old Giottesque tradition. He went to Rome where he painted frescoes in the Church of San Clemente for the Cardinal Branda Castiglione. For the same patron he decorated the church of Castiglione di Olona in the province of Como, Italy. There he represented scenes from the life of the Virgin and of St. John the Baptist. Attributed to Masolino are The Foundation of Santa Maria Maggiore and a Madonna and Christ in Glory (Naples); Madonna with Angels (Church of San Fortunato, Todi); two Annunciations (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.); and Saints (Philadelphia Museum).

Resulta licito pensar que el propio Ghiberti aconsejase y motivase su traslado a Venecia; aqui estuvo durante el intervalo 1425-1430 interesado por las vidrieras y el mosaico (35) y, por tanto, ajeno a la eclosion masacciesca (capilla Brancacci del Carmine y Trinidad de Santa Maria Novella); a su regreso a Florencia ya habia muerto el pintor valdarnes e incluso Masolino estaba ausente, primero en Roma y luego en Castiglione d'Olona.

During the 1420s Fra Antonino's own parent convent of San Domenico at Fiesole had become involved with another prominent Florentine patron, Felice Brancacci, who was quickly selling off his family assets in order to fulfil the obligation entered into, entered into by a previous generation, to decorate in the appropriate manner the chapel in the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine (the result being the frescoes of Masaccio and Masolino in the Brancacci Chapel).
A silk-screened design in Untitled (Garden State), 1988, derives from the fifteenth-century Italian painter Masolino da Panicale, who reveled in the ornamentation on rich brocades.
There have been Gentile in Fabriano, Masaccio in S Giovanni Valdarno, Sodoma is coming to Vercelli and we await Masolino in Panicale, Michelangelo in Caprese and Titian in Cadore (or at least the ambition to put on these local ventures, all of which have been attempted in the past).
When Maitland Griggs purchased it back in 1925, Masaccio's elder and somewhat hapless assistant Masolino seemed a fair bet as an attribution, even though it was a bit like squeezing a square peg into a round hole.

If you wish to venture away a little from the bustling centre of the city, a hidden gem lies in the delightful, unassuming little church of Santa Maria del Carmine, with the Brancacci Chapel, where Masolino, his young protege Masaccio and Filippino Lippi painted the Life of Saint Peter, combining Gothic, Humanist and Renaissance influences to produce perhaps the most beautiful fresco in the city.
Just as the baby is invariably a boy, I say, the parent is always a woman--while Masaccio or Masolino or Filippo Lippi was painting the portrait, Joseph was stuck in the sand trap on the thirteenth hole.

La rigidita di questa scena stradale si ispira alle opere Rinascimentali di Masolino di Paniacale e Piero della Francesca, che Balthus copio a Firenze ed Arezzo nel 1927, e dalla peculiarita delle "vedute di Parigi" che dipinge fra il 1927 ed il 1929.
