Bon, Bono or Buon, Bartolomeo (c.1405–c.1467). Venetian architect and sculptor who worked with his father, Giovanni (c.1362–1443), on the celebrated Gothic palazzo known as the Ca'd'Oro (1421–40), and subsequently on the west wing (facing the Piazzetta) of the Doge's Palace (1424–43) in which their Gothic style reached perfection. The Porta della Carta (1438–43), which lies between the palace and the basilica, makes a transition between Gothic and early Renaissance. Bartolomeo was responsible for the west portals of Santi Giovanni e Páolo (1458–63) and San Cristofero Martire (also known as Madonna dell'Orto), both essentially Classical, as is his east end of the Porta della Carta, known as the Arco Foscari (c.1440–64/67). To judge from the lowest storey of the Ca'del Duca Sforza (now Palazzo Corner), the building (1456–7), had it been finished, would have been a very advanced and early Renaissance palazzo. Also attributed to him is the gateway of the Arsenal (1460), one of the earliest Renaissance structures in Venice.
