Andrea Landini was a Florentine who displayed early artistic talent. He painted some portraits and flower subjects but is best known for his ecclesiastical subjects depicting cardinals in their fine robes. These paintings are often humorous but are painted with fine attention to detail. The artist's use of rich purples and crimsons give his paintings a jewel-like quality and confirm his place as one of the finest artists of this genre.
