 Francesco Bonsignori



Francesco Bonsignori         Pages: 1

(b Verona, c. 1460; d Caldiero, nr Verona, 2 July 1519).

Italian painter. His father, Albertus Bonsignori, was reputedly an amateur painter; and besides Francesco, the oldest and most talented of his children, three other sons, including Bernardino (c. 1476–c. 1520) and Girolamo (b c. 1479), are also recorded as painters. Barely 20 paintings and fewer than a dozen drawings have been attributed to Francesco Bonsignori. Documents from his time at the Gonzaga court in Mantua and Vasari’s account of his life are the main sources for information on the artist.
