Monaco, Lorenzo

Monaco, Lorenzo a Genoese painter, sometimes called the "Monk of the Isole d'Oro," flourished in the 14th century. He was a favorite of the king and queen of Aragon, to whom he presented several illuminated missals. A beautiful Angel, with arms crossed over his bosom, and floating in the air, is credited to him in the Florence gallery; also The Flight into Egypt, in the Arena at Padua, in which picture Mary and Joseph are attended by Salome and three youths. But very little is known of this artist. He died, according to Lanzi, in 1408.
