Andrea di Giusto, also known as Andrea Manzini or Andrea di Giusto Manzini (active 1425-1450) was an Italian painter of a late-Gothic to early-Renaissance style in Tuscany. He has been also been referred to as Andrea di Firenze, but this creates confusion with two or more other artists.

History

Andrea was putatively born in Florence circa 1400. He is said to worked in 1420-1424 under Bicci di Lorenzo in paintings for Santa Maria Nuova. Early in his career, he appears to copy models of Lorenzo Monaco. After 1430s, he was influenced by Fra Angelico. In 1436, he is said to have worked with Masaccio in painting the Life of San Giuliano for the Polyptych of Pisa, including the painting of Madonna and Child. In 1428 he is enrolled in the guild of the Arte dei Medici e Speziali in Florence as "Andrea di Giusto di Giovanni Bugli". He also appears to have collaborated in 1445 with Paolo Uccello in the Capella dell'Assunta in the Prato Cathedral.

His son, Giusto d'Andrea, worked with Neri di Bicci and Benozzo Gozzoli. Andrea died in Florence in 1450.

He painted a number of other altarpieces, including:

  • Madonna of the Assumption (1437) Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence
  • Madonna and Child with Saints (1435) polyptych for San Bartolomeo alla Sacca, Prato
  • Trittico Gualino, Pinacoteca of Turin.
  • Adoration of the Magi and Saints Andrew, John the Baptist, James, and Antony Abbot (1435), for the church of San Michele in Mormiano, moved to Museo d’arte sacra della Collegiata di Santa Maria di Figline e Incisa Valdarno
