Nota a catalogo

In 1927 Roberto Longhi grouped together a corpus of work attributed to the so-called Maestro Esiguo, whom he associated with one of two assistants in the workshop of Benozzo Gozzoli.1  It was Diane Cole Ahl, however, who formally identified the two anonymous assistants in her 1996 monograph as Gozzoli’s sons, Alesso and Francesco.2  While no documents survive precisely ascribing individual works to either son, Ahl proposes that the more intricate and elegant hand known as the Master Esiguo was most likely that of his younger son, Alesso.3

We are grateful to Professor Andrea De Marchi for endorsing the attribution.
