Mantegna was born in 1431. He trained in painting at the Padua School where
Donatello and Paolo Uccello had previously attended. Even at a young age
commissions for Andrea’s work flooded in, for example the frescoes of the
Ovetari Chapel of Padua. In a short space of time Mantegna found his niche as
a modernist due to his highly original ideas; the use of perspective in his
works. His marriage with Nicolosia Bellini, the sister of Giovanni, paved the
way for his entree into Venice. Mantegna reached an artistic maturity with his
altarpiece of Pala San Zeno. He remained in Mantua and became the artist for
one of the most prestigious courts in Italy - the Court of Gonzague. Despite
his links with Bellini and Leonardo da Vinci, Mantegna refused to adopt their
innovative use of colour or leave behind his own technique of engraving. The
Bridal Suite is considered his most accomplished work.
