Quick Reference

(active 1317–47).

Sienese painter, Simone Martini's brother-in-law and most able follower. They jointly signed the celebrated Annunciation (1333, Uffizi, Florence) and their respective shares in it are uncertain. Several other works are signed by Memmi, including Madonnas in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin, and S. Maria dei Servi, Siena, showing his refined draughtsmanship, delicate palette, and extremely sensitive modelling. He was not an innovator, but an indication of the high quality of his work is that several paintings are disputed between him and Simone.
