Michele Giambono

Michele Giambono

Giambono, Michele, fl.1420-62, Venetian mosaicist and painter, whose original name was Michele Giovanni Boni. One of the last exponents of the international Gothic style, his work has close affinities with the paintings of Gentile da Fabriano and Jacobello del Fiore. Of his mosaics the most important are Birth of the Virgin and Presentation in the Temple (St. Mark's, Venice). Among his paintings are Christ Rising from the Tomb (Metropolitan Mus.) and St. Peter (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.).
Michele Giambono (c. 1400- c. 1462) was an Italian painter and mosaicist of the Early Renaissance in Venice. Giambono's style, in general, remains archaic and iconic, and seems generally unaffected by Florentine experimentation with perspective and dimensionality of figures. He designed some of the mosaics,representing scenes from Life of the Virgin, in the Mascoli chapel in the church of Saint Mark's Basilica. Also known as Michele di Taddeo, Giambono, Zambone, Zambono, Bono, or Michele Giovanni Boni

He was a pupil of Jacobello del Fiore. He was born at Venice about the beginning of the century. At the Accademia is a Redeemer between St. Bernardino and other Saints painted soon after the canonization of that saint, which occurred about 1470.
