Margaritone d'Arezzo (1216-1290) was an Italian painter from Arezzo. Little is known of Margaritone's life. The only documentary record of his existence dates from 1262, when he lived in Arezzo. However, a fair number of his works are known to survive, and unusually for the time, most are signed. Their nature and distribution indicate that Margaritone was much in demand as an artist, both in Arezzo and throughout Tuscany.Margaritone's style is uniquely identifiable, standing as it does outside the mainstream of 13th century Italian painting.   more from wikipedia »
