Biography:
Lorenzo Costa was influenced early on by the painters, Cosimo Tura and Ercole de’Roberti and may have studied with either of them. He settled in Bologna in 1483 and painted frescoes for local chapels and canvas pieces. Costa created the altarpiece for Bologna’s San Petronio church in 1492 titled Madonna and Child with Saints. He then received several commissions from the Gonzaga family before moving to Mantua in 1507 to succeed Andrea Mantegna as their court painter. Costa lived there until his death in 1535.
