(b ?Pisa, c.1394; d ?Rome, ?1455). Italian painter, draughtsman, and medallist. He presumably came from Pisa (hence his nickname—‘the little Pisan’), but he spent his early years in Verona, a city with which he kept up his association for most of his life. His successful career also took him to Rome, Naples, and several courts of northern Italy, particularly those of the Este (Ferrara) and Gonzaga (Mantua).
