The article discusses the Renaissance artist Pietro Perugino. His altarpiece painting "Assumption of the Virgin" is discussed and the fact that it involved several figures previously used by Perugino in other work is examined. The compensation Perugino received for his work, as well as the cost and production aspects of it, is explored. Perugino's reputation as a painter, as well as the importance of reputation to artists generally, is also analyzed.
