Paolo Uccello (born Paolo di Dono, 1397 ¿ 10 December 1475) was an Italian painter who was notable for his pioneering work on visual perspective in art. He used perspective in order to create a feeling of depth in his paintings and not, as his contemporaries, to narrate different or succeeding stories. Paolo worked in the Late Gothic tradition, and emphasized colour and pageantry rather than the Classical realism that other artists were pioneering. His style is best described as idiosyncratic, and he left no school of followers. He has had some influence on twentieth century art (including the New Zealand painter Melvin Day) and literary criticism.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
