Donato Bramante
b. 1444; Fermignano, Italy
d. 3-11-1514; Rome

Donato Bramante, architect and town planner, was first a painter of murals who is noted for introducing perspective features into his architectural plans that gave the illusion of much larger spaces. His work for Pope Julius II St. Peter's Basilica achieved the “grand manner” which indirectly led to Mannerism style.

Though few of his original buildings have survived unaltered, Bramante inspired and influenced successive architects. Of special importance is The Tempietto, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.

His works of the original rotunda and dome of the U. S.
