Fiorenzo di Lorenzo was an important master of the Umbrian school, whose workshop produced Perugino and Pinturicchio. He mainly painted religious themes. He developed his style in accordance with Benozzo Gozzoli in Florence, with Antonio Pollaiuoli and Luca Signorelli. Provincial traits again become dominant towards the end of his oeuvre.
