Giusto de Menabuoi

Vasari, who thought he came from Padua, placed Giusto de' Menabuoi in his life of Carpaccio and other Lombards; the scale and magnificence of the frescoes in the Baptistery of the cathedral in Padua entitles him here to his own section. "Giusto, a painter of Padua, painted in the Chapel of S. Giovanni Battista, not only certain scenes from the Old Testament and the New, but also the Revelations of the Apocalypse of S. John the Evangelist..." Menabuoi was a follower of Giotto pupils, then Orcagna, and he was influenced by Tommaso da Modena as well.
