Description

Giovanni Mansueti studied with Gentile Bellini, and his work, with its bold, clear colors and focus on details, has often been confused with that of his master. Like Bellini, Mansueti specialized in narrative painting cycles based on the lives of saints and holy figures, that frequently included accurate portrayals of his native Venice. Many of these works were commissioned by commercial guilds and fraternal organizations and featured portraits of their leading members. It is likely that Mansueti also executed several individual portraits, such as the Museum’s Portrait of a Man.
