Gherardo di Jacopo Starnina
(b Florence, ?c. 1360; d Florence,
before Oct 1413).
Italian painter, Florentine
school. A pupil of Antonio Veneziano, he is first mentioned
in 1387 in the records of the Compagnia di S Luca in
Florence. Starnina was in Toledo in 1393, possibly with his
former master, and in Valencia in 1395, 1398, 1399 and 1401.
Documents indicate that he executed numerous commissions for
frescoes and panel paintings in both towns, but no surviving
works can be connected with certainty to these records.
