Florentine fifteenth-century painters such as Filippo Lippi, Domenico Ghirlandaio, and Botticelli asserted their claim to be judged the equal of poets—no longer mere craftsmen. Whether commissioned to paint the Madonna (Filippino Lippi, Luca Signorelli, Fra Bartolomeo), evoke the history of primitive man (Piero di Cosimo), or adorn a church (Fra Carnevale) or private residence (Botticelli's Last Communion of Saint Jerome), each employed a cultivated and highly personal style that demonstrated both his particular creative genius and his ability to describe the world around him.
