Melozzo da Forlì

(mālôt`tsō dä fōrlē`), 1438–94, Umbrian painter. His extant works, though few, reveal him as a painter of power and individuality. He is especially notable for his bold foreshortening, in the use of which, particularly in vaultings, he was a pioneer. His known works include the great fresco of the Ascension, in the cupola of the Church of the Santi Apostoli, Rome (Quirinal Palace, Rome); a fresco, Pope Sixtus IV Giving Custody of the Vatican Library to Platina, painted for the Vatican Library, and Angels Making Music, a fragment (Vatican).
