Bonfigli (also Buonfigli) was an Italian painter, active in Umbria. He trained under Domenico Veneziano and was influenced by Benozzo Gozzoli and Giovanni Boccati, amongst others. He painted beautiful faces; in total, however, he was somewhat cold and stiff in his composition. Amongst other things, he painted numerous standards for the guilds in Perugia.
