PIERMATTEO D’AMELIA and the Renaissance in Southern Umbria




Umbria Online The exhibition devoted to Piermatteo d’Amelia, scheduled to run from December 12th to May 2nd next year, aims to acquaint the general public with a lesser-known artist who nonetheless was a major figure in the late Quattrocento and one of the great masters of the Renaissance in Umbria.
A wealth of detailed archive information concerning the work of Piermatteo has survived, indicating that his career played out chiefly in Southern Umbria as well as in Upper Lazio and in Rome itself.

His apprenticeship was carried out alongside Filippo Lippi from 1467 to 1469 while the master was working on his commission for the frescoes of the Duomo of Spoleto. After Lippi’s death in 1469 Piermatteo continued to learn in Florence with Lippi’s leading assistant Fra Diamante. It was in Florence that Piermatteo first came into contact with the prolific workshop of Verrocchio. Immediately afterwards he started working with Perugino on the Sistine Chapel (1480-1481), for which he designed the decoration of the ceiling and completed several sections alongside Pinturicchio – The Journey of Moses and The Circumcision.

During this time he did not, however, interrupt his frequent journeys to Umbria to work on a number of major commissions such as that of the Opera del Duomo in Orvieto (1480-1481), for the Augustinian Friars in Orvieto (1482) and for the Franciscans in Terni (1483). It was at this stage that Piermatteo became acquainted with the art of Antoniazzo Romano.
