Encyclopedia > Lorenzo Costa

Lorenzo Costa (1460 - 1535) was an Italian painter. He was born at Ferrara, but went in early life to Bologna and ranks with the Bolognese school. In 1438 he painted his famous Madonna and Child with the Bentivoglio family, and other frescoes, on the walls of the Bentivoglio chapel in San Giacomo Maggiore, and he followed this with many other works. He was a great friend of Francia, who was much influenced by him. In 1509 he went to Mantua, where his patron was the Marquis Francesco Gonzaga, and he eventually died there. His Madonna and Child enthroned is in the National Gallery, London, but his chief works are at Bologna. His sons, Ippolito (1506-1561) and Girolamo, were also painters, and so was Girolamo's son, Lorenzo the younger (1537-1583).
