Uccello, Paolo (Italy, 1397-1475)
The artist Uccello worked during the Italian Renaissance. He was very interested in using perspective to create the illusion of three-dimensional space. His most famous creation is a group of enormous tempera paintings. The work, which is filled with soldiers on horseback, depicts the battle of San Romano. Uccello painted the scenes on three large panels. Today, each one is in a different museum.
