Castagno, Andrea del
(ca. 1423-1457)
   The most talented Florentine painter of the generation following Masaccio, whose style influenced him greatly. He thoroughly assimilated the techniques of perspective defined by Filippo Brunelleschi and first successfully applied to painting by Masaccio. The technical mastery demonstrated in his Last Supper (ca. 1445-1450) was confirmed by his David, completed about five years later.
