Portrait of Francesco Sforza

Bonifacio Bembo was an Italian painter and miniaturist. Born in Brescia and formed in the late Gothic school, he was influenced by the Renaissance style. After his knowledge with Gemistus Pletho, he absorbed the latter’s Neoplatonic ideals, which are reflected in the symbolism of his famous tarot cards.

His paintings include the frescoes of the church of St. Augustine in Cremona and the portrait of Francesco I Sforza and his wife Bianca Maria Visconti (both from 1462), now in the Pinacoteca di Brera of Milan.
