MASIP, Vicente
(b. ca. 1475, Andilla, d. 1550, Valencia)


Vicente Masip (or Macip), Spanish painter, one of a dynasty of artists working in Valencia. Little is known of his life, but his major work, the main altarpiece of Segorbe Cathedral (completed 1535), shows him to have been a leading representative of the Italianate style. During his later years he collaborated with the outstanding member of the family, his son and follower Juan Vicente (better known as Juan de Juanes, c. 1523-79). Juan's work combines figures in the Italian Mannerist style with a polished Netherlandish technique. He was the leading painter of his time in Valencia and had many followers.
