The Italian painter and engraver Andrea Mantegna is one of the most important painters of the early Renaissance in northern Italy. He came from a humble background and worked as a cattle herder at a young age. But early on his talent for drawing was discovered and Mantegna went to study at a school of painting in Padua. With Francesco Squarcione he learned to depict antique sculptures. In addition, the works of the sculptor Donatello influenced the young painter. As the first work Mantegna created a large altarpiece in a church in Padua. In 1447 the painter parted with his teacher in a dispute.

Mantegna then entered the service of various patrons and made some important works. So he worked together with an assistant donatello on frescoes of the Eremitanikirche in Padua. Mantegna rose to court painter of Ludovico Gonzaga in Mantua. In addition, he also accepted commissioned works in Rome, Pisa and Florence. Through Mantegna's painting, Mantua became at times the center of fine art. Mantegna's reputation as a major artist eventually led the painter to the court of Pope Innocent VIII to paint a chapel above the Vatican Palace. Today this area is known as Belvedere. There, however, the painter felt limited in his artistic freedom and returned to Mantua.

Andrea Mantegna's painting shows the art of the Florentine School, which he brought to perfection. Mantegna's portrayals are powerful and resemble works of sculpture. In his depictions of individuals and architecture, the influence of antiquity is clearly shown. The painter used his frescoes of perspective means. He works with a trained eye out the anatomy of his characters. Mantegna's main works include the high altar of San Zeno in Verona, where he worked from 1456-1459. A few years later, in Mantua, Mantegna painted the Camera degli Sposi at the Castello di San Giorgio. The painter created for the first time a group portrait and an illusionist ceiling painting that faked a view into the open air. Mantegna was considered a gifted engraver. His engravings can now be seen in major museums. In 1506, Andrea Mantegna died in Mantua. Many of the painter's frescoes were damaged or destroyed during World War II. © Meisterdrucke
