Piero della Francesca, the biography

Piero della Francesca (c. 1415– 12 October 1492) was a painter of the Early Renaissance. As testified by Giorgio Vasari in his Lives of the Artists, to contemporaries 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 works are wonderfully suspended between art, geometry and complex system of multi-level reading, at the confluence of complex theological, philosophical and topical. He managed to harmonize, in life as in the works, the intellectual and spiritual values of his time, by condensing multiple influences and mediating between tradition and modernity, between religiosity and new claims of humanism, between rationality and aesthetics.
