Pinturicchio

(pēnto͞orēk`kyō) or

Pintoricchio

(pēntō–) [Ital.,=little painter], c.1454–1513, Umbrian painter whose real name was Bernardino di Betto. A prolific and facile painter, he was influenced by Perugino, with whom he collaborated on the frescoes for the Sistine Chapel. Pinturicchio worked chiefly in Perugia, Rome, and Siena. He decorated the Borgia apartments in the Vatican and several churches in Rome. His most elaborate project was the decoration of the cathedral library in Siena. In the Metropolitan Museum are many panels of mythological scenes from the ceiling of the reception room in the Palazzo del Magnifico in Siena. The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., has several of his religious works.

Pinturicchio

 

(real name Bernardino di Betto di Biagio). Born circa 1454 in Perugia (?); died Dec. 11, 1513, in Siena. Italian quattrocento painter of the Umbrian school.

Pinturicchio was influenced by Perugino, whom he assisted in 1481 and 1482 in the execution of the frescoes for the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. Pinturicchio’s murals for the Borgia suite in the Vatican (1493-94) are marked by a careful technique, a diverse and rich palette, and a variety of ornamental motifs. The artist’s easel paintings, such as Portrait of a Boy (Dresden Picture Gallery), are joyful and poetic.

To be sure, major artists have entries, and there is an essay on Visual Arts and Literature which ranges from Dante to Arte povera and new expressionism, highlighting links such as those between Botticelli, Poliziano, and Neoplatonism, but an Enea Silvio Piccolomini without mention of Pienza or Pinturicchio is greatly diminished, as is a Federigo da Montefeltro without reference to Piero's portrait; the Dominicans, Franciscans, and Jesuits should be given credit for their artistic patrimony, and the few lines given to Cosimo (under Medici) ignore that artistic legacy that still attracts visitors to Florence.
