Ercole de’ Roberti
De Roberti was the court painter to the d’Este family in Ferrara. A shadowy figure, with very few works, firmly attributed to him. De Roberti was interested in perspective, architectural details, and the way buildings are constructed.
De Roberti’s major works are St. Jerome in the Wilderness, c. 1470 (Los Angeles: J. Paul Getty Museum); St. John the Baptist, c. 1478–80 (Berlin: Dahlem Museum); The Wife of Hasdrubal and Her Children, c. 1480–90 (Washington, DC: National Gallery of Art).
