LUCA DI TOMME (active 1356_1389 in Siena) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter. He worked in Siena in the second half of the 14th century and was one of the generation of artists who inherited and upheld the conventions of Duccio, Simone Martini and Pietro and Ambrogio Lorenzetti. While he was not an innovator, his extensive output helped to sustain the decorative Sienese style that was to survive well into the 15th century. Over 50 works have been attributed to him, mostly altarpieces, although it is not always possible to distinguish his hand.
