Piero della Francesca was born in Borgo San Sepolcro, in a family of artisans and merchants, probably sometime between 1415 and 1420.

Piero was in Florence around 1439, and his stay there became fundamental to his development, with his career as a painter beginning by Piero working with Domenico Veneziano on the frescoes in the choir of the church of Sant' Egidio.

One of the most important aspects of Piero's work is his combination of the Florentine-based perspective-based art with the Netherlandish concentration on the study of light and natural phenomena.

Piero della Francesca examines the life and works of Piero, from his formative years in Florence, to the Fresco Cycle in the Church of San Francesco in Arezzo, to his later works and the development of Linear Perspective in Italian Painting.
