..., Donato , or Donato di Pascuccio d'Antonio ( c. 1443 / 4 – 1514 ), Italian architect and painter, born near Urbino. He may have had contact with artists in the ducal court such as Francesco di Giorgio , who may have stimulated or created Bramante's interest in perspective . He began his career as a painter: in 1477 he was employed painting the perspectival Philosophers on the façade of the Palazzo del Podestà in Bergamo, and subsequently painted the Men at Arms frescoes ( 1480–5 ) now in the Brera in Milan. In about 1479 Bramante entered...

..., Donato ( 1444–1514 ) Italian architect and painter . He is best known as the greatest exponent of High Renaissance architecture. His first building, Santa Maria presso San Satiro in Milan ( c .1481 ), uses perspective to give an illusion of deeply receding space in the choir. In 1506 , he started rebuilding St Peter's, Rome. His influence was enormous and many Milanese painters took up his interest in perspective and trompe l'oeil...

..., Donato ( Donato di Angelo ) ( b probably Monte Asdrualdo [now Fermignano], nr. Urbino, c. 1444 ; d Rome, 11 Apr. 1514 ). Italian architect and painter. Bramante was the creator and greatest exponent of the High Renaissance style in architecture, but most of his early career, which is ill documented, seems to have been devoted to painting. He probably trained in Urbino and the first record of him dates from 1477 , when he is said to have worked on fresco decorations at the Palazzo del Podestà in Bergamo. In about 1480 he settled in Milan,...

..., Donato ( 1443/4–1514 ), Italian architect, engineer, and painter. He left his native Urbino for Lombardy in 1472 , and settled in Milan, where he worked until the French conquest of 1499 . His standing as an architect is based on the buildings of his years in Rome ( 1500–14 ), particularly the Tempietto. His principal accomplishment in garden design is the Belvedere Court (Cortile del Belvedere), a vast extension to the Vatican Palace on which work began in 1505 ( see Vatican Gardens ). The Belvedere Court as it now stands represents Bramante's...

..., Donato ( c .1443–1514 ) Italian architect . His early career in the Milan area is notable only for introducing elements of Roman Classicism to the region. S. Maria presso S. Satiro (from 1482 ) has massive barrel vaults; more curiously, to compensate for the lack of a chancel, Bramante designed a perspective illusion in terracotta, giving the impression of a chancel of three bays. He may then have been involved (from 1488 to 1497 ) in the rebuilding of Pavia Cathedral, and a new eastern section of S. Maria delle Grazie, Milan (begun 1492 ),...

..., Donato or Donato di Angelo di Pascuccio d’Antonio ( 1444–1514 ) The only architect of the High Renaissance (with the exception of Raphael ) respected by his peers and successors as the equal of the Ancients, it was he, above all, who revealed the power, emotional possibilities, and gravity of Antique Roman architecture. Born near Urbino, he trained as a painter, and perhaps knew Piero della Francesca ( c. 1410/20–92) and Francesco di Giorgio at the Court of Federigo da Montefeltro ( r. 1444–82) in that city, but his first documented...

..., Donato (probably 1444–1514 ), was certainly the first great architect of the High Renaissance. He is believed to have been born at Fermignano, near Urbino, which in the 1460s was the most cultured and distinguished court in Italy. He must certainly have been aware of the superb architecture of the new palace at Urbino, begun by Laurana in the late 1460s, and also of the influence of Piero della Francesca , who was working for Federigo, Duke of Urbino, in the late 1460s and early 1470s, and whose pupil Bramante may well have been. Nevertheless, his...
