GUIDO DA SIENA   (active in the second half of 13th century in Siena) Nationality : Italian

Guido da Siena was the all but mythical founder of the Sienese School. He signed a picture in the Palazzo Pubblico, Siena, and dated it 1221, but there are other pictures, also in Siena, associable with him which are datable 1262 and in the 1270s. There are therefore two schools of thought: (i) that 1221 is correct, in spite of the evidently repainted surface of much of the picture. In this case (a) Siena precedes Florence in the development of Dugento painting, and (b) the other pictures mentioned are by Guido's followers, not by Guido himself.
