Emmanuel Tzanes (Greek: Εμμανουήλ Τζάνες, 1610 – 28 March 1690), also known as Buniales (Greek: Μπουνιαλής), was a Greek Renaissance painter.

He was born in Crete and migrated to Venice where he did most of his work. He was one of the most respected Greek painters of his day. Tzanes was a member of the Cretan School and contemporary of another Cretan painter of Venice, Theodore Poulakis. [1][2][3]
