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.

It took almost 2 months to ship; that is why the 3 stars. I teach at a University, and we wanted a solid easel that could hold up the abuse of students for years. This is definitely a strong easel, and it seems like it will hold up to the test of time. The top portion of the easel allows you to hold paintings at an angle so you decrease reflection of the surface which is nice... but it takes a little bit of time to get used to adjusting it to hold the canvas well. I would buy another one (or 30) if they would have shipped in a week or two. The easel itself gets 5 stars.

I have used Delta paints for years. I do craft shows all year long, besides having a shop in a flea market. My best sellers are glass ornaments that I paint using Permenamel and also the Accent liners for personalization. It is the only paint I use. Love the fact that they air dry. I also use the Delta acrylic and Ceramicoat for other painting projects ie. cast iron, saws, milk cans and many others. What can I say, I am a fan of Delta.

I love Inktense pencils. The colors are vivid, and they work great with my watercolor paints, and stay vibrant when I go over the area to touch up.
