This itinerant painter was born sometime around 1370 in Fabriano, a town in the Marches (Fabriano has been making paper for nearly some 800 years and counting).

It’s not known how he learned his craft; what is known is that he settled nowhere, and went where the work was, which included Foligno, Brescia, Florence, Siena, and Rome. In Florence, he was hired by Palla Strozzi, the richest man in town, to do an altarpiece for a family chapel commemorating his dead father Onofrio. That lusciousness may be seen in his Adoration of the Magi, signed and dated 1423, now hanging in the Uffizi. It’s one of the pinnacles of the style known as International Gothic: the painted fabric of the three wise men startles.

The painting is littered with exotic animals (try counting them all). Gentile died in Rome in 1427.
