Simone Martini

Simone Martini (c.1284-1344) was a Sienese painter who greatly influenced the development of the International Gothic style. Martini was a pupil of Duccio and his brother-in-law was the artist Lippo Memmi[?].

His works include the Maestà (1315) in the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, St Louis of Toulouse Crowning the King (1317), the S. Caterina Polyptych (1319) and the Annunciation and two Saints (1333), as well as frescoes in the Chapel of St. Martin in S. Francesco, Assisi.
