Leaves from Choir Books
Sano di Pietro
Sano di Pietro (1405-1481) was one of the most prolific and influential painters and illuminators in 15th-century Siena. He illuminated two of the leaves, MSS 196 and 198. They preserve echoes from his earliest securely dated work, the altarpiece which he completed for the church of the Gesuati and signed in 1444.
