Biagio d'Antonio was an Italian painter born in Florence in 1446. He was a member of the Florentine school of painting, and his work is characterised by his attention to detail and use of bright colours. D'Antonio's early work was influenced by the style of Fra Filippo Lippi, but he later developed his own style, with a greater emphasis on the use of light and shadow. He was known for his skill in painting landscapes, and his works often depicted scenes from the countryside around Florence. D'Antonio's most famous work is the altarpiece he painted for the church of San Giovanni in Valdarno. The altarpiece, now in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, depicts the Madonna and Child surrounded by saints and angels. D'Antonio died in Florence in 1516, but his influence on the development of Renaissance painting in Italy was felt for many years after his death.
