Andrea Mantegna - Portrait of a man [1470-75]

Andrea Mantegna (Italian: [anˈdrɛa manˈteɲɲa]; c. 1431 –1506) was an Italian painter, son in law of Jacopo Bellini. 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.
