Sherwood A. Fehm, Jr., analyzes the paintings, provides ecclesiastical and communal documents pertaining to both the artist and his art, and presents a complete catalogue to re-create the life and to explicate the art of Luca di Tommè, the leading painter in Siena after the Black Plague of 1348.
In this first full-length study of Luca di Tommè, Fehm revives a neglected yet important artist who flourished during a period previously overshadowed in art history. He identifies Luca’s achievements and relates them to the rich tradition of Sienese painting. Placing Luca in the fourteenth-century Italian tradition, Fehm briefly outlines the careers of the four great Sienese painters of the first half of the century: Duccio di Boninsegna, Simone Martini, and the brothers Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti, the artists who most influenced Luca.
In addition to the detailed catalogue of Luca’s works, which is divided into Accepted Works, Doubtful Attributions and Shopworks, and Lost Works, Fehm establishes for the first time an accurate chronology. The study is completed with photographs of all of Luca’s paintings, many of them taken specifically for this book. For close investigation, specific details from a number of the more important works are illustrated.
