Andrea Mantegna

Andrea Mantegna Andrea Mantegna (c. 1431 September 13, 1506) was an Italian painter.
Like other artists of the time, Mantegna experimented with perspective, e.g., by lowering the horizon in order to create a sense of greater monumentality.
His flinty, metallic landscapes and somewhat stony figures give evidence of a fundamentally sculptural approach to painting.
He also led a workshop that was the leading producer of prints in Venice before 1500.
Lamentation over the Dead Christ (c.1470-80)
Tempera on panel, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan
One of the greatest Early Renaissance paintings produced outside Florence, it is renowned as probably the most famous example of the illusionistic technique of foreshortening in the quattrocento.
Camera degli Sposi frescoes (1465-74)
Fresco, Camera Picta, Ducal Palace, Mantua
One of the most famous examples of Early Renaissance illusionistic painting, the ceiling and mural frescoes in this commonplace reception room at the Ducal Palace in Mantua, are characterized by trompe l'oeil painting techniques like quadratura.
