Lorenzetti was active between approximately 1306 and 1345. He was born and died in Siena. He was influenced by Giovanni Pisano. He and his brother, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, helped introduce naturalism into Sienese art. In their artistry work and experiments with three-dimensional and spatial arrangements, they foreshadowed the art of the Renaissance. Many of his religious works are in churches in Siena.
Giorgio Vasari includes a biography of Lorenzetti in his Lives.
