By Costanza Beltrami

As we know from a document referring to his widowed wife Catalina, Italian painter Giuliano da Rimini was dead by 19 March 1346. In fact, the artist’s activity is only documented from 1307, when he signed a reredos now in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, to 1323, when he paid for the lease of his house in Rimini. The painter and his presumed brother Giovanni da Rimini were among the first to introduce the style of Giotto to Romagna.
