Agnolo Gaddi (c.1350–1396) was an Italian painter. He was born and died in Florence, and was the son of the painter Taddeo Gaddi.

Taddeo Gaddi was himself the major pupil of the Florentine master Giotto. Agnolo was an influential and prolific artist who was the last major Florentine painter stylistically descended from Giotto. Among his pupils was the author of an art treatise, Cennino Cennini.[1]


Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects. Gaddi's work includes frescoes in the choir of Santa Croce in Florence as well as:

  • Madonna Enthroned with Saints and Angels (1380/1390), tempera on panel. Triptych, possibly commissioned for a Cistercian monastery.
  • Coronation of the Virgin (c.1370), tempera on panel.[2] This painting is probably the central panel of an altarpiece, possibly from the church of San Giovanni de' Fieri near Pisa.
  • Madonna of Humility with Angels (mid 1390s), tempera on panel
  • Crucifixion (no date), tempera on wood. Part of a polyptych.
  • Histories of the Virgin and the Cintola in Prato Cathedral
