Famous Persons: Francesco Petrarca c. 1450 Fresco transferred to wood, 247 x 153 cm Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence
The picture shows one of the three Tuscan poets represented in the cycle.
Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374) (Petrarch) was an Italian scholar, poet, and Humanist whose poems addressed to Laura, an idealized beloved, contributed to the Renaissance flowering of lyric poetry. Petrarch's inquiring mind and love of classical authors led him to travel, visiting men of learning and searching monastic libraries for classical manuscripts. He was regarded as the greatest scholar of his age.
