Foligno
He was born in 1430 in Foligno, its more illustrious child, Niccolò di Liberatore, famous painter and magnificent interpreter of the Renaissance. It owes his nickname to one "mistake" of Giorgio Vasari, which interpreted the signature of a work that brought the wording '' alumnus Fulginie '' (that is '' trained in Foligno ''), as part of his name. Since then Niccolò was known as the Pupil. Initially its artistic expression received the influence of the angelic one and Benozzo Gozzoli, but quite soon he clearly overcomes their art in virtue of the sincerity of an intense mystical feeling, strongly permeated by an emotional plant. The Pupil is the representative of this school that more than every other has known how to interpret the typical pathos of the pictorial Umbrian art, translating it in a dramatic plasticity and dynamism. Its characters apparently put aside the physical beauty, but they conduct the spectator in a more intense spiral of emotion. This is evident in his many paintings in the Umbrian churches and in the museums, which show lengthened figures, a certain fineness of the sketch, shining colours and a dry plastic prominence. Among the most mature works a place of absolute relief and excellence deserves the '' Polyptich of Nativity '', visible in the Church of San Nicolò of Foligno, inside which is found also a '' Nativity '', other expression of the Pupil.
