Smeraldo di Giovanni

Smeraldo di Giovanni (1365-1444) was an Italian painter of the late-Gothic through early-Renaissance period, active in Florence.

BiographyEdit

He worked with Ambrogio Baldese in Orsanmichele in 1402.[1] He is known to have been active in 1420, when he presumably worked in the same studio as Giovanni Dal Ponte (1385- c. 1438; thought to be the same person as Giovanni di Marco).[2] The Scali chapel of Santa Trinita in Florence has a fresco cycle by Giovanni dal Ponte and Smeraldo di Giovanni.
