GHISSI Francescuccio (active 1359-1395) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter. He was the leading 14th-century painter from the Marches after Allegretto Nuzi, with whom he collaborated. The overall pattern of his activity is unknown. Most of his surviving panels depict the Madonna of Humility. Frescoes in S Francesco in Sanseverino were recorded but are now lost. Between his earliest known work, the signed Madonna of Humility (1359; Fabriano, S Domenico), and the Madonna of Humility with an Angel (1374; Montegiorgio, S Andrea) his draughtsmanship and facial modelling became more assured and the design of the basic triangular group more elegant.
