Biagio d’Antonio Tucci (1446 – 1 June 1516) was an Italian Renaissance painter whose style was influenced by Filippo Lippi, Andrea Verrocchio and Domenico Ghirlandaio.

Biography[edit]

Biagio was born in Florence.

For much of the last quarter of the 15th century he was active in Faenza, but his style continued to reflect Florentine innovations. His paintings also demonstrate influences—particularly in the decorative elements—from early Netherlandish painting.

The painter sometimes collaborated with other artists. In 1481–1482, he assisted Cosimo Rosselli on frescoes in the Sistine Chapel, including the Last Supper and probably the Crossing of the Red Sea. He helped Pietro Perugino in painting in the Palazzo della Signoria. His other works include the Temperani predella at Cortona and a Madonna between St Francis and Mary Magdalene at San Casciano in Val di Pesa.

He also frequently painted cassone panels.
