Simone Martini
(Italian, c. 1284 - 1344)

Born in Siena. He was a major influence in the development of the international gothic style.  He worked in a number of places during his lifetime which included Naples, Orvieto and Assisi in Italy and Avignon, France.  Martini's manner of painting, characterized by graceful linear design, elaborately tooled and burnished gold backgrounds and delicate refinement of detail, exerted a wide influence among artists of the international style in the fourteenth century.
