Altichiero da Verona, also known as Aldighieri da Zevio, was a painter of Gothic style in Italy. His paintings show the beauty of nature and the horrors of war. The artist was well-known for his works of religious subject matter. His work is highly valued by art collectors and has been shown in many museums. He is a highly influential artist and is considered one of the best Italian painters of the Gothic style.
