NEROCCIO DE' LANDI
(b. 1445, Siena, d. 1500, Siena)
Sienese painter and sculptor. He was a pupil of Vecchietta and worked in partnership with Francesco di Giorgio until 1475. Most of his paintings are representations of the Virgin and Child with Saints, but one of his finest works is a Portrait of a Girl in the National Gallery in Washington. He continued the elegant and refined Sienese tradition that stretched back to Duccio and his work is particularly noted for its delicate colouring.
