Brunelleschi, Borromini, Bellini, Bernini...

Bellini, who mentored Titian and was really more known for his religious works than his secular ones like the one above.

Brunelleschi, responsible for making the dome for the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore happen. Go him.

Borromini, whose reconstruction of San Carlino is still gorgeous all these centuries later.

Bernini, who designed (among many many many other famous sculptures) the baldacchino in St. Peter's Basilica.

Bramante and Boccaccio! Those were the other two I forgot.

Bramante's Tempietto, considered a masterpiece of Renaissance architectural design.

And Boccaccio Baccaccino, not to be confused with the other Boccaccio. Painted a great many lovely frescoes, like the one above, Virgin and Child With Saints (c.1505).

Back to studying!
