Art History - Historical Artists > F > Bernardino Fungai


Historical Artist - Bernardino Fungai (1460 - 1516)

Although little is known about Bernardino Fungai’s career, he is thought to have studied under local painters in his native city of Siena. His paintings show evidence of influence from local Sienese painters and also Pietro Perugino. In 1482, he was working on frescoes for the cupola in the Siena Cathedral. Fungai was commissioned in 1494 to decorate ceremonial banners with gold and azure. Scholars are piecing together the details of his life by using an altarpiece he created in 1512 for a Sienese church.
