Enguerrand QuartonEnguerrand Quarton or Charonton (c. 1410 - c. 1466) was a French painter and manuscript illuminator whose few surviving works are among the first masterpieces of a distinctively French style, very different from either Italian or Early Netherlandish painting.
Piero della FrancescaPiero della Francesca (c. 1412 October 12, 1492) was an Italian artist of the Early Renaissance. His painting was characterized by its serene humanism and its use of geometric forms, particularly in relation to perspective and foreshortening.
