Painters: Italian: Francesca, Piero della
Piero della Francesca (circa 1415 – 12 October 1492) was an Italian painter of the Early Renaissance. As testified by Giorgio Vasari, he was also known as a mathematician and geometer. Nowadays Piero della Francesca is chiefly appreciated for his art. His painting was characterized by its serene humanism, its use of geometric forms and perspective. His most famous work is the cycle of frescoes "The Legend of the True Cross" in the church of San Francesco in the Tuscan town of Arezzo.
