Andrea Mantegna (c. 1431, near Vicenza, Italy , September 13, 1506, Mantua) was the first truly Renaissance artist of Northern Italy. A serious student of Roman archaeology and son-in-law of Jacopo Bellini, Mantegna is credited with inventing the techniques of foreshortening and spatial illusionism.
He was also the first artist to manipulate perspective as he thought best, e.g., by lowering the horizon in order to render his figures more monumental.
His flinty, metallic landscapes and somewhat stony figures give evidence of a fundamentally sculptural approach to painting.
