Melodic Angels, Boxed Holiday Cards

About the Artist

Historians refer to the artist as the Master of the Saint Lucy Legend because his principal work, an altarpiece dated 1480, depicts episodes from the life of that saint. His style is characterized in both paintings by oval faces that are restrained in expression, the use of intense color, and a tendency to over-emphasize elaborate textures.
