BULGARINI Bartolommeo (active 1337, Siena, d. 1378, Siena) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter. Many of his paintings were attributed by Berenson to an anonymous master he called Ugolino-Lorenzetti, because of the artist's obvious indebtedness to the work of Ugolino di Nerio and Pietro Lorenzetti. A group of paintings that partially overlapped with these was attributed by Dewald to an artist he called the Ovile Master, after a painting formerly in S Pietro a Ovile, Siena. In 1931 Meiss recognized that these works formed the oeuvre of a single artist, and in 1936 he identified this figure as Bartolommeo Bulgarini.
