Cimabue, the nickname (Ox-head) given to Cenni di Peppi), was the major artist working in Florence at the end of the 13th-century. Associated with Gothic art*, he was an important forerunner of the later International Gothic style. A contemporary of Dante (who describes him in The Divine Comedy, as the leading painter of the time), he is supposed to have taught the great Giotto di Bondone (1267-1337) and initiated the move from the static "unreal" style of Byzantine* art to the more realistic modern idiom of Proto-Renaissance art, employing three-dimensional space, more natural-looking human forms and greater emotion.
