Andrea Pisano

Andrea Pisano (c. 1270-1348), also known as Andrea da Pontadera, was an Italian sculptor and architect. He is best known for the panels on the bronze south doors (1330-36) of the Baptistery in Florence. In 1340 he succeeded Giotto as Master of the Works of Florence Cathedral, and in 1347 he became Master of the Works at Orvieto Cathedral. He had two sons Nino and Tommaso who also became sculptors. His pupils include Andrea Orcagna.

Giorgio Vasari includes a biography of Andrea Pisano in his Lives.
