  • Tommaso Portinari (vers 1427 - 1501) est un banquier italien, travaillant notamment pour la succursale de la banque des Médicis à Bruges.

  • Tommaso Portinari (1424?-1501) was an Italian banker for the Medici bank in Bruges. He was a member of a prominent Florentine family, coming from Portico di Romagna, near Forlì; that family had included Dante's muse, Beatrice. His father was a Medici branch manager, and after his death in 1421, Tommaso and his orphaned brothers were taken in and raised in the household of Còsimo de' Mèdici. Today he is mainly remembered for two significant commissions of Early Netherlandish paintings.Portinari was an employee in the Bruges branch for a very long time, more than 25 years, but never rose higher than assistant manager and factor, apparently at the insistence of Còsimo de' Mèdici, who did not trust him. After Còsimo's death, he became general manager and shareholder in the branch at the age of 40. (His brothers were managers of the Milan branch of the bank.) When Francesco Sassetti's influence removed the long-standing ban on lending to secular officials in 1471, Portinari used his position to make very large and extremely risky unsecured loans to Charles the Bold—loans which were never repaid and cost the bank heavily. He initially loaned 6000 groat, more than twice that branch's total capital; the loan only grew worse, until it stood at 9500 groat in 1478. Unsurprisingly, for his good services, Portinari became a favored councilor to Charles the Bold. On the latter's death in battle, the loan went essentially into default. Further good money was thrown after bad when he lent to Archduke Maximilian of Austria, Charles's successor. A small portion of this loan was eventually repaid.He was the defendant in Ruffini v. Portinari in 1455, one of the very first legal cases to deal with separation of partnerships and legal liability: he was sued by the Milanese Damiano Ruffini for "defective packing of nine bales of wool bought by the plaintiff from the Medici branch in London. The defendant pointed out that the bales never belonged to the Bruges branch and that the plaintiff should sue the London branch." Portinari testified that the two branches were legally and commercially separate, apparently persuading the judge who denied Ruffini's suit, but upholding his right to sue the manager of the London branch.Financial problems with the sale of alum from the joint Papal-Medici alum cartel and bad investments like two galleys that either sank or were captured by privateers, along with the still outstanding bad loans to Charles the Bold, caused the Medici to finally give up on Bruges in 1478, when they unilaterally dissolved the partnership. Portinari was essentially fired. His attempts to start his own bank failed, his past services to the Medici and the Duchy of Burgundy were forgotten, and he died a pauper.While at the height of his career, he had himself memorialized in religious paintings. One, the Portinari Triptych, is visible today in Florence. In commissioning it, he ostentatiously compared himself with his predecessor at the Bruges branch, Angelo Tani. He may also have commissioned The Last Judgment, by Hans Memling, as it has been suggested that the soul of the sinner being weighed on the scales of St. Michael is in fact a donor portrait of Portinari. This painting, also intended for a Florentine church, was hijacked by pirates from the Baltic Sea, leading incidentally to a lengthy lawsuit against the Hanseatic League to force them to return it. He and his wife are portrayed in donor portraits in Hans Memling's c.1470 painting Scenes from the Passion of Christ, now held by the Galleria Sabauda in Turin.
  • Tommaso Portinari (1432 - 1501) was een Florentijnse bankier. Hij had een filiaal van de de' Medici-bank te Brugge. Van hem werd een portret gemaakt door Hans Memling, bewaard in het Metropolitan Museum of Art te New York , bekend als 'Portinari-triptiek'.Als belangrijke geldschieters van de Bourgondische hertogen huurden de de' Medici te Brugge het hof Bladelin, dat ingericht werd als bank van de de' Medici. Piero de' Medici, zoon van Cosimo, liet er een vleugel bijbouwen. Tommaso Portinari bewoonde dit Brugse patriciërshuis van 1479 tot 1497. Hij schonk aan de Sint-Jakobskerk te Brugge een tondo met Maria en kind van de Italiaanse beeldhouwer Luca della Robbia. Portinari ging failliet doordat hij grote sommen had uitgeleend aan Karel de Stoute en Maximiliaan van Oostenrijk. Hij vertrok in 1497 uit Brugge. Tommaso Portinari was een grote liefhebber van Vlaamse kunst. Zo werd de Portinari-triptiek, ook bekend als de Aanbidding der Herders, in zijn opdracht geschilderd door Hugo van der Goes.
