Pietro Cavallini

(Pietro del Cerroni)

(b c. 1240; d after c. 1330).

Italian painter and mosaicist. He was a member of the ancient Roman family of the Cerroni. He worked for most of his life in Rome and is associated chiefly with the large-scale works in fresco and mosaic that he carried out in many of the city’s basilicas and churches. His importance is founded on three interrelated factors. First, his style displays a new vision of the human figure and, as he was active in Rome before Giotto, it is probable that the new style Giotto brought to Tuscan art was indebted to Cavallini. Second, he reached artistic maturity at a time when the papacy, from the reign of Nicholas III (1277–80) onwards, was re-establishing its presence in Rome by the institution of large-scale artistic projects, so providing artists with opportunities to produce influential work on a monumental and prominent scale; and third, he is the first medieval artist whose identity and personality are known.

IL CAVALLINI


Pietro del Cerroni, known as II Cavallini (active 1273-1321), was a Roman designer of mosaics, such as the Life of the Virgin, in Santa Maria, Trastevere, Rome, and painter of frescos, such as those in Santa Cecilia, also in Trastevere. In 1308, he worked in Naples for Charles II, and was considered to be the major exponent of artistic renewal in his time. The sense of three-dimensionality in his work and supple treatment of surfaces constitute an important break with tradition.
