 Francesco del Cossa
 

(b Ferrara, c. 1435; d Bologna, 1476–7).

Italian painter. Together with Cosimo Tura and Ercole de’ Roberti, Cossa was one of the most important painters working in Ferrara and Bologna in the second half of the 15th century. With them he shared an expressive use of line and solidity of form, but he also had a gift for decorative and anecdotal scenes, most evident in the frescoes in the Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara.
