Sir John Everett Millais, 1st Baronet, PRA (8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896) was an English painter and illustrator and one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

Mantegna, Andrea (1431?-1506). An Italian painter and engraver, Mantegna painted heroic figures, often using a dramatic perspective that gives the viewer the illusion of looking up below. The effect is somewhat the same as looking up ground level at statues mounted on a pedestal. Mantegna was born about 1431 near Vicenza, Italy. When he was about 10 years old he was adopted by Francesco Squarcione an art teacher in Padua.  Mantegna died in Mantua in 1506 and received the special honor of having a funeral chapel in the church of Santa Andrea dedicated to his honor.

Mariotto di Bigio di Bindo Albertinelli (October 13, 1474 - November 5, 1515) Italian painter. Albertinelli's contribution to the Florentine High Renaissance was inspired by the work of Fra Bartolomeo, and the two artists worked together in a partnership, their paintings appearing to be the product of a single hand. Albertinelli, however, always retained artistic independence, as is revealed in certain paintings that are eccentrically archaic and in others that show a preference for conventions more typical of the early Renaissance.

Simone Martini (c. 1284 – c. 1344) was an Italian painter born in Siena. He was a major figure in the development of early Italian painting and greatly influenced the development of the International Gothic style. It is thought that Martini was a pupil of Duccio di Buoninsegna, the leading Sienese painter of his time. His brother-in-law was the artist Lippo Memmi Very little documentation survives regarding Simone's life, and many attributions are debated by art historians. Simone Martini died while in the service of the Papal court at Avignon in 1344

Lippo Memmi (c. 1280 – 1356) was an Italian painter from Siena. He was the foremost follower of Simone Martini, who was his brother-in-law. Together with Martini, in 1333 he painted one of the masterworks of the International Gothic, the Annunciation for the Sienese church of Sant'Ansano (now in the Uffizi). He was one of the artistd who worked at the Orvieto Cathedral, for which he finished the Madonna della Misericordia. Later he followed Martini at the Papal court in Avignon, where he worked until the mid-14th century. After his return to Siena Memmi uted several works until his death in 1356.
