Andrea Mantegna (1431-1506)

More »
Author name: Andrea Mantegna.
(1431, Vincenza, Italy - 1506). An Italian painter and engraver, Mantegna painted heroic figures, often using a dramatic perspective that gives the viewer the illusion of looking up from below. When he was about 10 years old he was adopted by Francesco Squarcione, an art teacher in Padua. At the age of 17 he set up his own workshop. His paintings helped foster the growing interest in the revival of classical forms.
