MANTEGNA, Andrea
(b. 1431, Isola di Carturo, d. 1506, Mantova)

1465-74
Walnut oil on plaster
Camera degli Sposi, Palazzo Ducale, Mantua

Lifted from the overall narrative context and considered as a family group portrait, the Court must rank among the finest examples of that genre, rivaling those by Velázquez and Goya.
