Vicente Masip (also Maçip) (Andilla, 1475 – Valencia, 1545) was a Spanish painter of the Renaissance period. His son was Vicente Juan Masip, and his grandson was named Vicente Masip Comes, also known as Vicent de Joanes.
Born in Andilla, he was influenced by Paolo de San Leocadio and Rodrigo de Osona upon the Quattrocento style. He is considered a Quattrocento painter. One of his prematurely works was the altarpiece of Porta-Coeli in the Museu de Belles Arts de València. He was also responsible for the old high altar of the Segorbe Cathedral amongst 1529 and 1532, perhaps already counting upon the urge on of his son Juan, which would explain the fiddle with in the orientation of his painting. He is also attributed the altarpiece of the Virgin of the Remedy of the Church of San Bartolomé de Benicarlo. It is a painting of the Virgin and Child Enthroned surrounded by various saints.
The Museo del Prado owns, among others, two of his paintings representing the Visitation and the Martyrdom of St. Agnes, executed for the chapel of St. Thomas of Villanova in the convent of San Julián de Valencia, probably commissioned by the venerable John Bautista Agnesio. The Renaissance stage upon which the statute is shows influences of the boards of the Acts of the Apostles of Raphael, who was known through engravings. Somewhat overshadowed by the fame of his son who had more an emotional and attractive style, but unconditionally better equipped, experts doubt the attribution of some works amid parent and child, especially those who had approved the father.
