(active 1352-1382 in Venice)


Italian painter with a fondness for archaic models and Byzantine influences. Little is recorded about Guglielmo's life, though two signed works by him are known: a polyptych in the abbey of San Martino in Piove di Sacco, Padua, and a triptych in the Museo Diocesano in Recanati in the Marches, which is dated 1382. Another polyptych by the artist is in the Duomo of Salò in Lombardy, and represents a Madonna Enthroned with Saints.

Other works have been ascribed to the artist but their current whereabouts are unknown. That Guglielmo's works should be so spread around Italy suggests the artist led a peripatetic life; this may explain that his style is not entirely rooted in the Venetian tradition, but displaying certain Bolognese influences.
