Perugino definitions

Merriam Webster's

biographical name circa 1450-1523 Pietro di Cristoforo Vannucci Italian painter

Britannica Concise

Italian painter. Born near Perugia (the source of his nickname), he was probably a pupil of Piero della Francesca and Verrocchio. One of his most famous frescoes, Giving of the Keys to St. Peter (1481-82), in the Sistine Chapel, anticipated High Renaissance ideals in its compositional clarity and sense of spaciousness. He was at the height of his powers c.1490-1500, when he painted the Crucifixion fresco for the convent of Santa Maria Maddalena dei Pazzi in Florence. Perugino's art declined in his later years, and c.1505 he left the highly critical Florentine art scene to work in Umbria. In 1508 he made a brief comeback by painting roundels on the ceiling of the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican. The commission for the wall frescoes went to his pupil Raphael, who had already proved himself the greater artist.
