Principal Paintings By Mantegna With Their Present Locations

MANTEGNA’S wall-paintings are spoken of as frescos, but as a matter of fact they were executed in tempera upon a dry surface. Tempera was also the medium he invariably used for his easel-pictures.

THE most exhaustive work on Mantegna that has yet appeared is Paul Kristeller’ s ‘Andrea Mantegna,’ translated into English by S. A. Strong (London, ’90 I). A brief and excellent study of the artist is by Maud Cruttwell (London,1901). Among other monographs may be mentioned those by Julia Cartwright (London, 1881), Paul Mantz (Gazette des Beaux-Arts, 1886), Henry Thode (Leipsic, 1897), and Charles Yriarte (Paris, 1901).
