Guariento di Arpo (c. 1338 - 1377)


Gothic Art, unfortunately, has been swallowed up in obscurity. Yet to truly understand the Renaissance, you have to look not only at its neoclassical roots in the rediscovered Greco-Roman tradition, but also at its natural roots in the developing ideas of the Post-classical European art period. So, here we have D'Arpo, who, like most Gothic artists, evinced a strong use of biblical ideas in his extremely well-composed works.
