The Veronese artist Francesco Bonssignori was best known to his contemporaries as a portraitist and court artist to the Gonzaga family. He was trained under Liberale whose painting style he retained even after arrving in Mantua about 1477, where he also received ideas from Mantegna. He worked for Francesco II Gonzaga.
