(b Borgo San Sepolcro [now Sansepolcro] c.1430; d Siena, 1495). Italian painter. He came from the same town as Piero della Francesca, and he painted the wings and predella (Pinacoteca, Sansepolcro) of the altarpiece of which Piero's Baptism of Christ (NG, London) was the centre panel. However, he spent most of his career in Siena, where he seems to have been one of the most popular and prolific painters of the second half of the 15th century. His style was elegant, linear, and decorative.
