Piero della Francesca – Arezzo

In his book, “The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects”, Giorgio Vasari (see previous post) mentions the work of Piero della Francesca. A painter of the early Renaissance period, Piero della Francesca was also an accomplished mathematician, publishing several texts on geometry and perspective. His most famous work of art is a cycle of frescoes titled “The History of the True Cross” in the church of San Francesco in Arezzo.
