Giambono, Michele mēkĕ´lā jämbō´nō [key], fl.1420–62, Venetian mosaicist and painter, whose original name was Michele Giovanni Boni. One of the last exponents of the international Gothic style, his work has close affinities with the paintings of Gentile da Fabriano and Jacobello del Fiore. Of his mosaics the most important are Birth of the Virgin and Presentation in the Temple (St. Mark's, Venice). Among his paintings are Christ Rising from the Tomb (Metropolitan Mus.) and St. Peter (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.).
