This study explores the development of painting in Lucca from 1369 until 1430, from the year of the newly established republican government to when Paolo Guinigi's Signoria was overthrown. Lucchese painting of this period is examined using surviving examples of visual evidence, and it is greatly reinforced by close analysis of a body of documentary evidence uncovered in the course of researching this thesis. This work presents an overarching account of the evolution of Lucchese painting between the aforementioned dates, for the first time establishing a detailed survey of visual culture of this specific territory within the wider context of Tuscany. Angelo Puccinelli, Giuliano di Simone and Francesco Anguilla, the only identifiable native painters for whom a recognisable corpus of work exists, are studied in detail, and a convincing chronology of their work is presented. Spinello Aretino's role in the development of Late Gothic and Neo-Giottesque styles in Lucca is critical, and this thesis firmly places him within the context of the Lucchese artistic milieu.
