Sicilian Renaissance

The Sicilian Renaissance forms part of the wider currents of scholarly and artistic development known as the Renaissance in Italy and Europe as a whole. Spreading from that movement's main centres in Florence, Rome and Naples, when Renaissance Classicism reached the island of Sicily it fused with influences from local late medieval and International Gothic art and Flemish painting to form a distinctive hybrid. The 1460s is usually identified as the start of the development of this distinctive hybrid Renaissance on the island, marked by the presence of Antonello da Messina, Francesco Laurana and Domenico Gagini, all three of whom influenced each other, sometimes basing their studios in the same city at the same time.
