Pecori, Domienico Aretino

Pecori, Domienico Aretino, a painter of Arezzo, who flourished about 1450, studied tinder Dol Bartolomeo della Gatta, and afterwards improved himself by studying the works of other masters. In the parochial church of his native city is a picture by him of the Virgin receiving under her mantle the people of Arezzo, who Are recommended to her protection by their patron saint. Lanzi says it is a judicious composition, enriched with good architecture, the airs of the heads resembling those of Francia. He used less gilding than was usual at the time.
