      //Lorenzo Costa//



      • Known as: Italian Renaissance painter
      • Born: c. 1460, Ferrara
      • Date of death: 1535, Mantua



    • Though Lorenzo Costa trained in Ferrara he left for Bologna in his early 20s to work for the Bentivoglio Court. Soon he was in partnership with Francesco Francia (c.1450-1517/18).

      He succeeded Mantegna (c.1431-1506) as Court Painter at Mantua in 1506. He painted two Allegories for Isabella d'Este (Paris, Louvre).

      In later life, he was plagued by ill-health which resulted in Giulio Romano eclipsing him.

      Works of his can be found in the Royal Collection.
