( fl Florence, c. 1475-c. 1500/05). Italian painter, draughtsman and designer. His only documented works are the seven predella panels (see fig.) for Domenico Ghirlandaio's altarpiece of the Adoration of the Magi (Florence, Gal. Osp. Innocenti), painted in 1488 for S Maria degli Innocenti, the church of the Foundling Hospital, Florence (Bruscoli). Berenson (1903), before he knew the artist had been identified, grouped a body of work around the painter of the Innocenti panels under the name Alunno di Domenico ('pupil of Domenico'). Later archival work (Pons) revealed that Bartolomeo di Giovanni was not the same person as Bartolommeo di Giovanni di Miniato, a bookseller and brother of the illuminators Gherardo and Monte del Foro, as Venturi proposed. Nor is it likely that he was the same person as the Bartolomeo di Giovanni Masini, who was a painter of banners (sargie) cited in the Red Book of the Compagnia di S Luca, Florence (Fahy, 1973, 1976); Fahy also believed that Masini was one of the del Foro brothers.
