Francesco Montemezzano

1540 - 1602

Francesco Montemezzano or Monte Mezzano was an Italian painter of the late-Renaissance or Mannerist period.
He was born near Verona, and appears to have been a follower, if not a pupil, of Paolo Veronese. He was active both in Venice and the mainland, painting mainly sacred subjects.
He completed some of the panels for the church of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli in the Venetian district of Dorsoduro. Ridolfi in a short biography notes that Francesco gave himself excessively to the pleasures of love, fell in love with expensive objects and this led to an early death by poisoning.
