Vincenzo Foppa

active 1456 - 1515/16

Foppa was a Brescian. He lived in Pavia from about 1456 to 1490, and thereafter in Brescia, although frequently absent on journeys. He may have trained with Squarcione and been influenced by Jacopo Bellini and Gentile da Fabriano.

He was the leading painter in Lombardy, and did much work for the Dukes of Milan, until Leonardo da Vinci arrived and transformed Milanese painting.
