Biccherna Cover. The Tribute Offering, from ca. 1364.
Lippo Vanni was a 14th century Italian who was active in his native Siena.
A miniaturist who painted for the Spedale in 1344, his name first appears on the Guild in 1355. In 1352 he executed a Coronation of the Virgin for the Biccherna. In 1359, together with Nello Betti, he executed some work in the Palazzo Pubblico, and in 1372 he painted an Annunciation for the cloisters of San Domenico at Siena, portions of which work still exist. In 1375 he received six gold florins and thirty-one soldi for painting the doors of the great crucifix in the cathedral of Siena.
