Mantegna was a serious student of Roman archaeology and son-in-law of Jacopo Bellini.
Like other artists of the time, Mantegna experimented with perspective as he thought best, e. His flinty, metallic landscapes and somewhat stony figures give evidence of a fundamentally sculptural approach to painting.
He led a workshop that was the leading producer of prints in Italy before At the age of eleven he became the apprentice of Francesco Squarcione, Paduan painter. Squarcione, whose original vocation was tailoring, appears to have had a remarkable enthusiasm for ancient art, and a faculty for acting.
Like his famous compatriot Petrarca, Squarcione was something of a fanatic for ancient Rome: As many as painters and pictorial students passed through his school, established towards and which became famous all over Italy.
Mantegna was Squarcione's favorite pupil. Squarcione taught Mantegna the Latin language and instructed him to study fragments of Roman sculpture. He also preferred forced perspective. Mantegna at the age of 17 separated himself from Squarcione.
He later claimed that Squarcione had profited from his work without paying the rights. Padua was attractive for artists coming not only from Veneto but also from Toscana: Mantegna's early career was shaped indeed by impressions of Florentine works.
Fresco Detail His first work, now lost, was an altarpiece for the church of Santa Sofia in After a series of coincidences, Mantegna finished most of the work alone.
This work was almost lost in the Allied bombings of Padua. The most dramatic work of the fresco cycle was the work set in the worm's-eye view perspective, St.
James Led to His Execution. The sketch of this fresco survived and is the earliest known preliminary sketch which still exists to compare to the corresponding fresco. Despite the authentic look of the monument, it is not a copy of any known Roman structure.
Mantegna also adopted the wet drapery patterns of the Romans, who derived the form from the Greek invention, for the clothing of his figures, although the tense figures and interactions are derived from Donatello. The drawing shows proof that nude figures were used in the conception of works during the Early Renaissance.
In the preliminary sketch, the perspective is less developed and closer to a more average viewpoint however. This worm's eye perspective, creating an effectively large and prominent setting, is also seen in his work The Holy Trinity with the Virgin, St.
John, and Two Donors. As the youth progressed in his studies, he came under the influence of Jacopo Bellini, father of the celebrated painters Giovanni and Gentile, and of a daughter Nicolosia; and in Jacopo gave Nicolosia to Mantegna in marriage.

Paintings of the Madonna and Child, that is, the Virgin Mary and infant Jesus, were enormously popular in 15th-century Italy in a range of sizes and formats, from large altarpieces of the sacra conversazione type to small paintings for the home.
