Bartolomeo Bon

Master of Venetian Gothic

Entrance to SS Giovanne e Paolo

Bartolomeo Bon (d. 1464), son of Giovanni, was a prolific sculptor and architect, an unsurpassed master of late Venetian Gothic. He was the designer of the elaborate Porta della Carta of the Palazzo Ducale, the beautiful elaborate entrances to SS. Giovanni e Paolo, San Polo and Santo Stefano and two of the city's prettiest palazzi, the Ca' d'Oro and Ca' Foscari and the church of San Rocco; he also contributed some of the sculpture in San Marco.
