Xanto Avelli, Francesco (Italian ceramicist and poet, ca. 1487-ca. 1542)

Note: Because of his many signed, dated, and inscribed works, more is known about Francesco Xanto Avelli than about any other maiolica painter. He appears to have been a learned and multitalented man. In addition to his maiolica painting, Xanto wrote a series of sonnets honoring the Duke of Urbino. For his istoriato wares and their inscriptions, he used scenes from classical and contemporary literature, which he often altered to suit his compositions; he also depicted contemporary events, such as the 1527 Sack of Rome.
