Paolo Uccello

Paolo Uccello

(c. 1396 - 1475)
Born: Florence, Italy
Style: Early Renaissance
Famous Works:
  • Funerary Monument to Sir John Hawkwood (1436)
  • Deluge (c. 1450)
  • The Battle of San Romano (c. 1455)
Paolo Uccello's training included time in the famous workshop of Florentine sculptor Ghiberti and a five-year stay in Venice. The artist developed an early interest in the burgeoning science of one-point perspective. It is suspected that the artist's time in Ghiberti’s workshop, a pioneer of perspective in his own right, was influential on Uccello's budding obsession with understanding the depiction of three-dimensional space. Uccello transformed flat panels into images that appeared to stretch for miles, relentless in his efforts to find the precise vanishing point within his compositions. The Battle of San Romano is his best-known work, and was most likely commissioned by Cosimo de Medici. The warfare between Florence and Siena in 1432 is shown in three panels, featuring men in brilliant armor positioned on horseback. This work is a testament to Uccello's intense study of design and composition. His palette of reds, greens, and blacks lends the painting elegance, and the forms of the spears carried by the soldiers give the painting a sophisticated rhythm. The narrative work is now divided among three museum collections. In addition to painting, Uccello also made decorative works of marquetry, and his study of perspective was supplemented by an intense fascination with mathematics.

I used this product in a woodblock printing class. I thought it was fine. Some of the women in the class bemoaned the plastic handle (not wood) but it is very convenient that the spare nibs can be kept inside the handle, and does it really matter if it is plastic? It was sometimes slow-going across the grain of the wood (white pine), but I don't know if that can be helped. The only problem I had was that the motion of carving would sometimes unscrew the cap in the handle, and I'd have to retighten it before it came off and the spare nibs fell out.

Great product! I have been making my own panel portraits on black foam board. I add these easel backs to the back and it finishes my upscale gift perfectly and affordably!

these are my my favorite pearlescent paints. I have been looking to replace my old set. The paints are creamy and so sparkly when mixed with little water. I love to create cards and these are the best.
