Cimabue (Italian: [tʃimaˈbue]; c. 1240 – 1302), also known as Cenni Di Pepi or in modern Italian, Benvenuto di Giuseppe, was a Florentine painter and creator of mosaics.Cimabue is generally regarded as one of the first great Italian painters to break away from the Italo-Byzantine style, although he still relied on Byzantine models. The art of this period comprised scenes and forms that appeared relatively flat and highly stylized.
