So while we tend to think of Michelangelo or DaVinci when we think Italian Renaissance, there are others of impressive skill such as Francesco del Cossa (1430 - 1477).
Francesco is especially well known for his frescoes, a technique of painting with fresh poured plaster and using water to deliver the pigment. When you look at the images he produced, it is quite remarkable just how good the outcome is given the quite tricky medium he worked in!
