Vittore Pisano

Vittore Pisano (c. 1380-1456), commonly called Pisanello, Italian medallist, was a native of San Vigilio sul Lago in the territory of Verona.

Specimens of his work as a painter are still extant in Rome, Venice, Verona and Pistoia, and entitle him to a place of some distinction in the history of that art. The National Gallery, London possesses a very fine specimen of Pisanello's work — a panel painted with miniature-like delicacy.

During the latter portion of his life he lived in Rome, where he enjoyed great repute.
