Art History: Sienese School: (1200 - 1400)
The Sienese School of painting originated in Italy in the 13th century and lasted until the 15th century. More conservative than the Florentine School, it drew upon the decoration and elegance of late Gothic art. Its principle artists include Duccio, Simone Martini, Pietro and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, and Domenico and Taddeo di Bartolo. Later significant additions to the Sienese School were Mannerist painters, Beccafumi and Sodoma.
