Nardo di Cione was an Italian, Byzantine style Painter. He was also a sculptor and an architect. He was born in Florence and worked there throughout his life. Nardo had two brothers who were considered to be more accomplished than he. His brothers were Andrea and Jacopo. His brothers were important members of the painters guild in Florence. Even though Nardo's brothers are noted as being more accomplished artists than he, Nardo is known for developing his own unique style. His style was described as a pronounced lyrical vein, a feeling for poetic values, strong human sympathies and great sensitivity to color as a means of subtle differentiation and soft modeling. Nardo is known for painting the frescoes of "The Last Judgement" and "Paradise and Hell" in the Cappella Strozzi in the Santa Maria Novella.
