North Italian painter and draughtsman Bartolomeo Montagna died on 11 October 1523 in Vicenza. Perhaps trained by Andrea Mantegna, Montagna was influenced above all by Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini. His work also shows an appreciation for Antonello da Messina. Montagna spent most of his career in Vicenza, where he created several monumental altarpieces for city churches. He also created frescoes and altarpieces in Padua and Verona.
