Cenni di Francesco di ser Cenni was an Italian Gothic painter active in Florence between 1369/1370 and 1415. His only signed work is fresco of the True Cross at the Cappella della Croce di Giorno at the church of San Francesco in Volterra, painted in 1410.[1] A couple of dozens work have been attributed to Cenni di Francesco of the basis of the similarity of style with the fresco.[2]

The fresco at the entrance to the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella in Florence is attributed to Cenni di Francesco as well, and it was presumably painted in the early 1390s, based on the comparison with the paintings of this period.[2]

A Polyptych with Coronation of the Virgin and Saints (circa 1390) is on display in the Getty Museum in California.[3]
