The Quattrocento is the name given to the artistic and cultural events of Italy in the fifteenth century, a period also known as the early Renaissance.
It is a term derived from mille quattrocento, Italian for one thousand four hundred (1400AD).
Florentine painters of this period include Jacopo da Sellaio, Lorenzo di Credi, Domenico Ghirlandaio and perhaps most famous of all, Sandro Botticelli.
