GONCALVES Nuno (active 1450-71) Nationality : Portuguese

Portuguese painter, the most important Portuguese painter of the 15th century. His work may be said to have initiated the Renaissance in Portuguese painting. He is first named in a document of 1450, when Afonso V (reg 1438-81) appointed him court painter. In 1470 a payment to him is recorded for an altarpiece painted for the chapel of the Palacio Real, Sintra, which, given the dedication of the chapel, probably represented the Pentecost (untraced). A document of 1471 states that Goncalves replaced the painter Joao Eanes (fl. from 1454) as Pintor das Obras da Cidade de Lisboa (Painter of works for the city of Lisbon).
