(b Bagnolo, nr Brescia, 1427–30; d Brescia,
Italian painter and architect, milanese school. He spent most of his
painting career at Pavia, where he was patronized by the ruling Sforza
family, the Dukes of Milan. Although many of his frescoes have been
destroyed, his work in this medium prompted Filarete to name him among
the greatest painters of his time, the only Lombard to be so honoured.
Foppa also worked at Genoa and Savona, but he spent most of his later
years working at Brescia.
