Apollonio di Giovanni di Tomaso (1414 – 1465), was an Italian painter. He was born in Florence and is also known as the "Master of the Jarves Cassone". Apollonio di Giovanni was recorded in Florence 1446 where he ran a workshop specialised in producing wedding chests known as cassoni and other such furniture. He died in 1465. He worked in partnership with the woodworker Marco del Buono Giamberti, whose son became Apollonio's pupil and heir.
His style was directly inspired by the compositions of Fra Angelico and other Florentines like Fra Filippo Lippi , Paolo Veneziano , Paolo Uccello and Gentile da Fabriano . His late works date back 15 years before his death: the miniatures for the Bucoliche , the Georgiche and the Aeneid of Virgil ( Biblioteca Riccardiana , Florence), the faces of the chests with the scenes of the Aeneid , two chests of the Odissea (Chicago Art Institute, and Frick Collection at the Fogg Museum).
