Organa, Andrea

Organa, Andrea a noted Italian painter, was born at Florence in 1329. In his youth he devoted himself to the study of sculpture, and later to architecture. Only in middle life did he take up the brush, but he soon secured a very enviable reputation as an artist in this branch. He died in 1389. Some of Organa's paintings are among the most noted of the 14th century. Most of them are at Pisa. A very remarkable production of his is The Universal Judgment. In it he painted his friends as in heaven, and his enemies as the residents of hell.
