Andrea Mantegna

Andrea Mantegna (born circa  1431 – died 13 September 1506) was an Italian painter, and a student of Roman archeology.

Image - Philatelic issue dedicated to Mantegna, with the portrait derived from the bust placed at the entrance of the funerary chapel in the Basilica of Sant'Andrea in Mantua. It is an ideal posthumous portrait, which portrays him at the age of about fifty.
