Domenico Veneziano

Domenico Veneziano (c.1400-1461) was an Italian painter, most probably born in Venice. Veneziano's work is noted for both his use of colour and perspective. His masterpiece is considered to be the St. Lucy Altarpiece (1445).

Vasari alleged that Veneziano was murdered by Andrea del Castagno, although this seems rather unlikely, given that Castagno died circa 1457, four years before Veneziano.
