Crucifixion

Gentile da Fabriano (Gentile di Niccolò di Giovanni di Massio)

Gentile da Fabriano was the greatest painter of the late Italian Gothic, an itinerant artist who worked in Lombardy, Brescia, Venice, in the marche, Orvieto and Rome.  His work shows the fluid llines that are characteristic of the late Gothic, lines without right angles, the waves of colour and a near absence of naturalistic imagery. There is no vegetation, animal or plants – a characteristic of the late Gothic shown clearly in painting of this period.
