Berlinghiero Berlinghieri, also known as Berlinghiero of Lucca, (fl. 1228 – before 1236) was an Italian painter of the early thirteenth century. He was the father of the painters Barone Berlinghieri, Bonaventura Berlinghieri, and Marco Berlinghieri. His actual name is unknown, as he is only known from the inscription "Berlingerius me pinxit" on the crucifix which is the basis of attributing other works to him.
His style was Romanesque, mainly line-based, with Byzantine influences. He is considered to be one of the main artists of the Tuscan art of the period. Works by Berlinghieri can be found at the San Matteo National Museum in Pisa, the Museo nazionale di Villa Guinigi in Lucca, the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
