Fra Giovanni Maria da Brescia was an Italian painter of the Renaissance period. He was born in Brescia in the latter part of the 15th century. He appears to have been related to Giovanni Antonio da Brescia. He was brought up a goldsmith, a profession at that time connected with the arts; and after studying painting and engraving for some time, he became a monk of the order of the Carmelites at Brescia, and painted several pictures for the church of his monastery, and in the cloister some fresco works, representing subjects from the history of Elijah and Elisha. He also engraved some plates, which are executed in a mixture of the styles of Marcantonio Raimondi and Andrea Mantegna. We have the following plates : Virgin and Infant Jesus, the Virgin holding a Book.Virgin and Infant in the Clouds; a circular plate.St. Gregory resuscitating a YouthThe History of the Emperor TrajanThree Monks of the Order of the Carmelites. 1512.
