San-gimignano, Vincenzo Da
San-Gimignano, Vincenzo Da, An Italian painter, was born in Tuscany, and flourished during the earlier part of the 16th century. He was one of the pupils of Raphael, who esteemed him very highly for the softness of his coloring and the beautiful paintings in wax with which he ornamented the facades of several palaces. During the sack of Rome in 1527, Vincenzo fled to San-Gimignano, having lost almost all his works and designs. He lived only a short time after this misfortune. His works are very rare, one being in the Museum at Dresden — a Madonna with the Infant Jesus and St. John.
