Neri de Bicci was a prolific painter of mainly religious themes, active principally in Florence as a panel painter. His grandfather Lorenzo di Bicci was also a painter in Florence, a pupil of Spinello Aretino. His journals from the years 1453-75, including the rates of remuneration for his work, are still preserved in the library of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
