Padovano, Giusto

Resource Toolbox

an old Italian painter who lived at Padua, was a native of Florence. His real name was Giusto Menabuoi; but he was called Padovano from having been eventually a citizen of Padua, where he chiefly resided, and died in 1397 at an advanced age. Vasari says Padovano was a disciple of Giotto, and attributes to him the very extensive works which adorn the church of S. Giovanni Battista in that city. In the picture over the altar are represented various histories of St. John the Baptist; on the walls various scriptural events and mysteries of the Apocalypse; and in the cupola is a choir of angels, where we behold, as in a grand consistory, the Blessed, seated upon the ground, arrayed in various garments. Lanzi says the composition of these works is very simple, but they are executed with a remarkable degree of diligence and felicity.
