Caravaggio
(Michelangelo Merisi)
(1573-1610)
Caravaggio was an Italian baroque painter who was the best exemplar of naturalistic painting in the early 17th century. His use of models from the lower classes of society in his early secular works and later religious compositions appealed to the Counter Reformation taste for realism, simplicity, and piety in art. Equally important is his introduction of dramatic light-and-dark effects—termed chiaroscuro—into his works.

Originally named Michelangelo Merisi, Caravaggio was born September 28, 1573, in the Lombardy hill town of Caravaggio, from which his professional name is derived. He may have spent four years as apprentice to Simone Peterzano in Milan before going to Rome in 1593, where he entered the employ of the Mannerist painter Giuseppe Cesari, also known as the Cavaliere d'Arpino, for whom he executed fruit and flower pieces (now lost). Among his best-known early works are genre paintings (scenes from everyday life) with young men—for example, The Musicians (1591?-1592, Metropolitan Museum, New York City)—which were done for his first important patron, Cardinal Francesco del Monte. Scenes such as the Fortune Teller (1594, versions in the Louvre, Paris, and the Museo Capitolino, Rome) were especially appealing to the artist's followers.

Michelangelo - (1475-1564)
Michelangelo was one of the most inspired creators in the history of art and, with Leonardo da Vinci, the most potent force in the Italian High Renaissance. As a sculptor, architect, painter, and poet, he exerted a tremendous influence on his contemporaries and on subsequent Western art in general.

A Florentine—although born March 6, 1475, in the small village of Caprese near Arezzo—Michelangelo continued to have a deep attachment to his city, its art, and its culture throughout his long life. He spent the greater part of his adulthood in Rome, employed by the popes; characteristically, however, he left instructions that he be buried in Florence, and his body was placed there in a fine monument in the church of Santa Croce.

El Greco - (1541-1614)
El Greco was a "Spanish" Mannerist painter, whose work, with that of Francisco de Goya and Diego Velázquez, represents the acme of Spanish art.

El Greco (meaning “The Greek”) was born in Iráklion, Crete (then a possession of the Republic of Venice), in 1541 and was named Domenikos Theotokopoulos. Details of his early life and training are sketchy, but he probably first studied painting in his native city. Although no works from his first years survive, they were probably painted in the late Byzantine style popular in Crete at the time. Reminiscences of this style are seen in his later work. He was an erudite man, whose taste for classical and contemporaneous literature seems to have developed in his youth.

The Lamentation of Christ, 1524, wood, Musée du Louvre, Paris.


Huber, Wolfgang
(German, 1485-1553)
Wolf Huber came from a family of artists and probably was an apprentice in his native city of Feldkirch, Austria. He made contact with Albrecht Altdorfer by 1510 and was also influenced by Durer, Mantegna, and Bellini. Huber set up a workshop in Passau, Germany and was appointed court painter to the Bishop of Passau. He created an altarpiece in Feldkirch in 1521. Eight years later, Huber became the architect for the local count, Graf Nicoluas of Salm and several years later was appointed Passau�s official architect. In addition to painting and architecture, Huber also created woodcuts and landscape drawings.

The Mocking of Christ, approx. 1503, pine panel, Pinakothek at Munich.


Matthias Grünewald - (1475-1528)
Matthias Grünewald was a German painter whose work, along with that of the German artist Albrecht Dürer, represents the supreme accomplishment of the Renaissance in northern Europe.

Misnamed by 17th century sources, Grünewald may have originally been named Matthias, Mathias, or Mathis Gothardt-Neithardt, and was born in Würzburg, possibly in 1475. In about 1519 he married, thereafter often signing his work with his name and his wife's surname, Niethart, or with a monogram of the intertwined initials M, G, and N. Documents place him in Seligenstadt from 1501 to 1521 as the owner of a workshop. By 1509 he had become court painter to the archbishop of Mainz, and by the second decade of the century he was also accepting commissions in Isenheim and Aschaffenburg. Because of his Protestant sympathies, he was forced to move, first to Frankfurt in 1526 and then to Halle in 1527; he died in Halle in August of the following year. His surviving work consists of only ten paintings—several of them polyptychs (multipaneled altarpieces)—and about 35 drawings, in various European and American collections. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Grünewald did not engrave or make prints. His earliest unquestioned painting is the vivid, emotionally charged Mocking of Christ (1503, Alte Pinakothek, Munich), which, with its distortions and brilliant color, foreshadows his mature work.

Perugino
(Pietro Vannucci, Italian, 1450-1524)
born c. 1450, Città della Pieve, near Perugia, Romagna
died February/March 1523, Fontignano, near Perugia

EARLY WORK

Nothing is known for certain of Perugino's early training, but he may have been a pupil of Fiorenzo di Lorenzo (c. 1440-1525), a minor painter in Perugia, and of the renowned Umbrian Piero della Francesca (c. 1420-92) in Arezzo, in which case he would have been a fellow pupil of one of his most famous contemporaries, Luca Signorelli. The two men were acquainted, and an occasional influence from Signorelliis visible in Perugino's work, notably in the direction of an increased hardness of drawing (e.g., Crucifixion and Saints, c. 1480-1500; Uffizi, Florence). In Florence, where he is first recorded in 1472, he almost certainly worked in the shop of the important painter and sculptor Andrea del Verrocchio, where the young Leonardo da Vinci was apprenticed.

The Arrest of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane,
outer-left wing of the triptych "The Temptation of St. Anthony",
grisaille on panel, Museu Nacional de Arte Antigna at Lisbon.


Hieronymous Bosch
(1450-1516)
Note: Born Jeronimus van Aken
Hieronymus Bosch is known for his enigmatic panels illustrating complex religious subjects with fantastic, often demonic imagery.

The documents about Bosch indicate that he followed the predictable life of a prominent Roman Catholic artist in 's Hertogenbosch, a provincial but prosperous town located in the modern Netherlands close to the Belgian border. His father and grandfather were both painters in the same town before him, and apparently Bosch lived all his life there. He married a local woman and joined the lay organization of the Confraternity of Notre Dame. Bosch was responsible for designing a stained-glass window, among several other works, for the town church. His art was well known outside 's Hertogenbosch during his lifetime.

References to astrology, folklore, witchcraft, and alchemy, in addition to the theme of the Antichrist and episodes from the lives of exemplary saints, are all woven together by Bosch into a labyrinth of late medieval Christian iconography. Scholars differ in their interpretation of Bosch's art, but most agree that his pictures show a preoccupation with the human propensity for sin in defiance of God, as well as with God's eternal damnation of lost souls in hell as a fateful consequence of human folly.

References to astrology, folklore, witchcraft, and alchemy, in addition to the theme of the Antichrist and episodes from the lives of exemplary saints, are all woven together by Bosch into a labyrinth of late medieval Christian iconography. Scholars differ in their interpretation of Bosch's art, but most agree that his pictures show a preoccupation with the human propensity for sin in defiance of God, as well as with God's eternal damnation of lost souls in hell as a fateful consequence of human folly.

Hieronymous Bosch
(1450-1516)
Note: Born Jeronimus van Aken
Hieronymus Bosch is known for his enigmatic panels illustrating complex religious subjects with fantastic, often demonic imagery.

The documents about Bosch indicate that he followed the predictable life of a prominent Roman Catholic artist in 's Hertogenbosch, a provincial but prosperous town located in the modern Netherlands close to the Belgian border. His father and grandfather were both painters in the same town before him, and apparently Bosch lived all his life there.

Leonardo da Vinci was a Florentine artist, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance, who was also celebrated as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His profound love of knowledge and research was the keynote of both his artistic and scientific endeavors. His innovations in the field of painting influenced the course of Italian art for more than a century after his death, and his scientific studies—particularly in the fields of anatomy, optics, and hydraulics—anticipated many of the developments of modern science.

Champaigne painted colorful historical and religious scenes influenced by Peter Paul Rubens, and he excelled at portraits in the realistic, perceptive Flemish tradition, as in Cardinal Richelieu (1637?, National Gallery, London).

Nicolas Poussin
(1594-1665)
Nicolas Poussin was a French painter who was the founder and greatest practitioner of 17th-century French classical painting. His work symbolizes the virtues of logic, order, and clarity, and it has influenced the course of French art up to the present day.

Poussin was of peasant extraction, born near Les Andelys, Normandy, in June 1594. He studied painting in Paris and perhaps also Rouen. In 1624 he went to Rome, where, except for an 18-month sojourn in Paris from 1640 to 1642, he lived for the rest of his life. His early work in Rome reflects the crowded compositions and animated surfaces of mid-16th century Mannerism. About 1630 his style began to change as he drew away from the emerging exuberant baroque style and devoted himself entirely to his passion for the antique, concentrating on biblical and mythological subjects.

Giovanni Bellini
(1426-1516)
Giovanni Bellini was a Venetian painter who was the presiding genius of early Renaissance painting in Venice, and an artist of world rank. He was the son of Jacopo and (probably younger) brother of Gentile Bellini.

Born in Venice, Giovanni Bellini began as an assistant in his father's workshop and continued painting into his mid-80s, gaining steadily in achievement and recognition. His first phase as an artist was strongly influenced by his formidable brother-in-law, the Paduan painter Andrea Mantegna, from whom he took a sculpturesque figure style; a sense for the potential eloquence of contour line; and occasional compositional ideas, as in the early Agony in the Garden (1460s, National Gallery, London). These are, however, infused with Bellini's own subtle perception of color and light, an exceptional sensitivity to the natural landscape, and a human empathy far more direct and tender than Mantegna's.

Christ Glorified in the Court of Heaven, panel, National Gallery, London.


Fra Angelico
(1400-1445)
Fra Angelico was an Italian painter of the early Renaissance who combined the life of a devout friar with that of an accomplished painter. He was called Angelico (Italian for “angelic”) and Beato (Italian for “blessed”) because the paintings he did were of calm, religious subjects and because of his extraordinary personal piety.

In Fiesole

Originally named Guido di Pietro, Angelico was born in Vicchio, Tuscany. He entered a Dominican convent in Fiesole in 1418 and about 1425 became a friar using the name Giovanni da Fiesole. Although his teacher is unknown, he apparently began his career as an illuminator of missals and other religious books. He began to paint altarpieces and other panels; among his important early works are the Madonna of the Star (1428?-1433, San Marco, Florence) and Christ in Glory Surrounded by Saints and Angels (National Gallery, London), which depicts more than 250 distinct figures. Among other works of that period are two of the Coronation of the Virgin (San Marco and Louvre, Paris) and The Deposition and The Last Judgment (San Marco). His mature style is first seen in the Madonna of the Linen Weavers (1433, San Marco), which features a border with 12 music-making angels.

The Mocking of Christ (with Benozzo Gozzoli), 1440-41, fresco, San Marco at Florence.


Fra Angelico
(1400-1445)
Fra Angelico was an Italian painter of the early Renaissance who combined the life of a devout friar with that of an accomplished painter. He was called Angelico (Italian for “angelic”) and Beato (Italian for “blessed”) because the paintings he did were of calm, religious subjects and because of his extraordinary personal piety.

In Fiesole

Originally named Guido di Pietro, Angelico was born in Vicchio, Tuscany. He entered a Dominican convent in Fiesole in 1418 and about 1425 became a friar using the name Giovanni da Fiesole. Although his teacher is unknown, he apparently began his career as an illuminator of missals and other religious books. He began to paint altarpieces and other panels; among his important early works are the Madonna of the Star (1428?-1433, San Marco, Florence) and Christ in Glory Surrounded by Saints and Angels (National Gallery, London), which depicts more than 250 distinct figures. Among other works of that period are two of the Coronation of the Virgin (San Marco and Louvre, Paris) and The Deposition and The Last Judgment (San Marco). His mature style is first seen in the Madonna of the Linen Weavers (1433, San Marco), which features a border with 12 music-making angels.

Raphael
(1483-1520)
Raphael was an Italian Renaissance painter who is considered one of the greatest and most popular artists of all time.

He was born Raffaello Santi or Raffaello Sanzio in Urbino on April 6, 1483, and received his early training in art from his father, the painter Giovanni Santi. According to many art historians, he also studied with Timoteo Viti at Urbino, executing under his influence a number of works of miniaturelike delicacy and poetic atmosphere, including Apollo and Marsyas (Louvre, Paris) and The Knight's Dream (1501?, National Gallery, London). In 1499 he went to Perugia, in Umbria, and became a student and assistant of the painter Perugino. Raphael imitated his master closely; their paintings of this period are executed in styles so similar that art historians have found it difficult to determine which were painted by Raphael. Among Raphael's independent works executed at Perugia are two large-scale paintings, the celebrated Sposalizio, or Marriage of the Virgin (1504, Brera Gallery, Milan), and The Crucified Christ with the Virgin Mary, Saints and Angels (1503?, National Gallery, London).

Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ" (2004) is already controversial.
"Jesus Christ Superstar" (1973) entertained even when it didn't inform.
"Jesus of Montreal" (1989) is a contemporary take on the Passion.
The "Jesus of Nazareth" miniseries (1977) showed an awareness of relgious sensitivities.
"The Greatest Story Ever Told" (1965) got terrible reviews.
Some called "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988) blasphemous.

Hans Holbein the Younger
(Approx. 1497-1543)
Hans Holbein the Younger (1497?-1543) was a German artist, one of the most accomplished masters of Renaissance portraiture, and a designer of woodcuts, stained glass, and jewelry.

Holbein was born in Augsburg. At an early age he began to study painting with his father, Hans Holbein the Elder, a recognized artist in the Flemish tradition who was a skilled portraitist. By 1515 Holbein the Younger had established himself in Basel, Switzerland, as a book illustrator. He designed many title-page woodcuts and completed a series of pen-and-ink sketches for The Praise of Folie by the Dutch scholar Desiderius Erasmus. During a trip to Italy in 1518, Holbein encountered the works of the Italian Renaissance painters Andrea Mantegna and Leonardo da Vinci. The impact of these and other artists on Holbein's work can be seen in the Renaissance modeling and composition in his early portrait Erasmus of Rotterdam (1523, Musée du Louvre, Paris) and in his renowned Dead Christ and the Passion of Christ (both Kunstmuseum, Basel) and the altarpiece Madonna of Burgomaster Meyer (Grand Ducal Palace, Darmstadt), all completed between 1519 and 1526. In each of these Holbein showed the greater freedom in draftsmanship and the richness of color that characterize the work of the North Italian masters. In his religious works Holbein integrated this wealth of detail and color with the dignity and severity of characterization appropriate to a religious subject.

El Greco - (1541-1614)
El Greco was a "Spanish" Mannerist painter, whose work, with that of Francisco de Goya and Diego Velázquez, represents the acme of Spanish art.

El Greco (meaning “The Greek”) was born in Iráklion, Crete (then a possession of the Republic of Venice), in 1541 and was named Domenikos Theotokopoulos. Details of his early life and training are sketchy, but he probably first studied painting in his native city. Although no works from his first years survive, they were probably painted in the late Byzantine style popular in Crete at the time. Reminiscences of this style are seen in his later work. He was an erudite man, whose taste for classical and contemporaneous literature seems to have developed in his youth.

Fra Angelico
(1400-1445)
Fra Angelico was an Italian painter of the early Renaissance who combined the life of a devout friar with that of an accomplished painter. He was called Angelico (Italian for “angelic”) and Beato (Italian for “blessed”) because the paintings he did were of calm, religious subjects and because of his extraordinary personal piety.

In Fiesole

Originally named Guido di Pietro, Angelico was born in Vicchio, Tuscany. He entered a Dominican convent in Fiesole in 1418 and about 1425 became a friar using the name Giovanni da Fiesole. Although his teacher is unknown, he apparently began his career as an illuminator of missals and other religious books. He began to paint altarpieces and other panels; among his important early works are the Madonna of the Star (1428?-1433, San Marco, Florence) and Christ in Glory Surrounded by Saints and Angels (National Gallery, London), which depicts more than 250 distinct figures. Among other works of that period are two of the Coronation of the Virgin (San Marco and Louvre, Paris) and The Deposition and The Last Judgment (San Marco). His mature style is first seen in the Madonna of the Linen Weavers (1433, San Marco), which features a border with 12 music-making angels.

Although his teacher is unknown, he apparently began his career as an illuminator of missals and other religious books. He began to paint altarpieces and other panels; among his important early works are the Madonna of the Star (1428?-1433, San Marco, Florence) and Christ in Glory Surrounded by Saints and Angels (National Gallery, London), which depicts more than 250 distinct figures. Among other works of that period are two of the Coronation of the Virgin (San Marco and Louvre, Paris) and The Deposition and The Last Judgment (San Marco). His mature style is first seen in the Madonna of the Linen Weavers (1433, San Marco), which features a border with 12 music-making angels.

Fra Angelico
(1400-1445)
Fra Angelico was an Italian painter of the early Renaissance who combined the life of a devout friar with that of an accomplished painter. He was called Angelico (Italian for “angelic”) and Beato (Italian for “blessed”) because the paintings he did were of calm, religious subjects and because of his extraordinary personal piety.

Flagellation of Christ. c.1606-1607.
Oil on canvas. Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rouen, France.


Caravaggio
(Michelangelo Merisi)
(1573-1610)
Caravaggio was an Italian baroque painter who was the best exemplar of naturalistic painting in the early 17th century. His use of models from the lower classes of society in his early secular works and later religious compositions appealed to the Counter Reformation taste for realism, simplicity, and piety in art. Equally important is his introduction of dramatic light-and-dark effects—termed chiaroscuro—into his works.

Originally named Michelangelo Merisi, Caravaggio was born September 28, 1573, in the Lombardy hill town of Caravaggio, from which his professional name is derived. He may have spent four years as apprentice to Simone Peterzano in Milan before going to Rome in 1593, where he entered the employ of the Mannerist painter Giuseppe Cesari, also known as the Cavaliere d'Arpino, for whom he executed fruit and flower pieces (now lost). Among his best-known early works are genre paintings (scenes from everyday life) with young men—for example, The Musicians (1591?-1592, Metropolitan Museum, New York City)—which were done for his first important patron, Cardinal Francesco del Monte. Scenes such as the Fortune Teller (1594, versions in the Louvre, Paris, and the Museo Capitolino, Rome) were especially appealing to the artist's followers.

Duccio di Buoninsegna was an Italian painter, a precursor of the Renaissance style, who brought to perfection the art of medieval Italy in the Byzantine tradition.

Born in Siena, Duccio was the founder of the Sienese school of painting. His work, all of it religious, is characterized by sensitive drawing, skillful composition, a decorative quality akin to that of mosaic, and a more intense emotional tone than that of the Byzantine models he followed. Duccio's most famous and only signed work is the Maestà (1308-1311), a huge altarpiece painted on both sides, made for the cathedral of Siena; now most of it is displayed in the cathedral's museum.

Duccio di Buoningegna
(approx. 1255-1319)
Duccio di Buoninsegna was an Italian painter, a precursor of the Renaissance style, who brought to perfection the art of medieval Italy in the Byzantine tradition.

Born in Siena, Duccio was the founder of the Sienese school of painting. His work, all of it religious, is characterized by sensitive drawing, skillful composition, a decorative quality akin to that of mosaic, and a more intense emotional tone than that of the Byzantine models he followed. Duccio's most famous and only signed work is the Maestà (1308-1311), a huge altarpiece painted on both sides, made for the cathedral of Siena; now most of it is displayed in the cathedral's museum.

Giotto
(1267-1337)
Giotto is considered to have been the most important Italian painter of the 14th century. His conception of the human figure in broad, rounded terms—rather than in the flat, two-dimensional terms of Gothic and Byzantine styles indicated a concern for naturalism that was a milestone in the development of Western art.

He was born Giotto di Bondone in Colle di Vespignano, near Florence. Details of his early life are scarce, but he probably served an apprenticeship in Florence before embarking on a career that took him to Rome, Padua, Arezzo, Rimini, Assisi, and Naples.

Matthias Grünewald
(1475-1528)
Matthias Grünewald was a German painter whose work, along with that of the German artist Albrecht Dürer, represents the supreme accomplishment of the Renaissance in northern Europe.

Misnamed by 17th century sources, Grünewald may have originally been named Matthias, Mathias, or Mathis Gothardt-Neithardt, and was born in Würzburg, possibly in 1475. In about 1519 he married, thereafter often signing his work with his name and his wife's surname, Niethart, or with a monogram of the intertwined initials M, G, and N. Documents place him in Seligenstadt from 1501 to 1521 as the owner of a workshop. By 1509 he had become court painter to the archbishop of Mainz, and by the second decade of the century he was also accepting commissions in Isenheim and Aschaffenburg. Because of his Protestant sympathies, he was forced to move, first to Frankfurt in 1526 and then to Halle in 1527; he died in Halle in August of the following year. His surviving work consists of only ten paintings—several of them polyptychs (multipaneled altarpieces)—and about 35 drawings, in various European and American collections. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Grünewald did not engrave or make prints. His earliest unquestioned painting is the vivid, emotionally charged Mocking of Christ (1503, Alte Pinakothek, Munich), which, with its distortions and brilliant color, foreshadows his mature work.

Ricci, Sebastiano
(Italian, 1659-1734)
Coming from a family of artists, Sebastiano Ricci began his formal artistic training in Venice. He then traveled extensively, working in Vienna, London, and Paris at times. His dramatic work created in the style Paolo Veronese was popular among royalty and religious patrons throughout Europe. As Sebastiano�s artistic reputation grew, so did the knowledge of his numerous crimes, imprisonments and love affairs. After impregnating Maddalena van der Meer in Venice, Ricci attempted to poison her. However, his plot was uncovered and he was put in jail only to be freed with the assistance of a nobleman. He then fled to Bologna where he was forced to marry by a papal official. Cardinal Antonio Pignatelli, later Pope Innocent XII, provided Ricci with most of his commissions while he was in Bologna.

Ricci, Sebastiano
(Italian, 1659-1734)
Coming from a family of artists, Sebastiano Ricci began his formal artistic training in Venice. He then traveled extensively, working in Vienna, London, and Paris at times. His dramatic work created in the style Paolo Veronese was popular among royalty and religious patrons throughout Europe. As Sebastiano�s artistic reputation grew, so did the knowledge of his numerous crimes, imprisonments and love affairs. After impregnating Maddalena van der Meer in Venice, Ricci attempted to poison her. However, his plot was uncovered and he was put in jail only to be freed with the assistance of a nobleman. He then fled to Bologna where he was forced to marry by a papal official. Cardinal Antonio Pignatelli, later Pope Innocent XII, provided Ricci with most of his commissions while he was in Bologna.

Michelangelo - (1475-1564)
Michelangelo was one of the most inspired creators in the history of art and, with Leonardo da Vinci, the most potent force in the Italian High Renaissance. As a sculptor, architect, painter, and poet, he exerted a tremendous influence on his contemporaries and on subsequent Western art in general.

A Florentine—although born March 6, 1475, in the small village of Caprese near Arezzo—Michelangelo continued to have a deep attachment to his city, its art, and its culture throughout his long life. He spent the greater part of his adulthood in Rome, employed by the popes; characteristically, however, he left instructions that he be buried in Florence, and his body was placed there in a fine monument in the church of Santa Croce.

The Deposition,
1612, oil on wood, Antwerp Cathedral.


Peter Paul Rubens
(1577-1640)
Peter Paul Rubens is considered one of the most important Flemish painters of the 17th century. His style became an international definition of the animated, exuberantly sensuous aspects of baroque painting. Combining the bold brushwork, luminous color, and shimmering light of the Venetian school with the fervent vigor of Michelangelo's art and the formal dynamism of Hellenistic sculpture, Rubens created a vibrant art, its pulsating energies emanating from tensions between the intellectual and emotional, the classical and the romantic. For 200 years the vitality and eloquence of his work influenced such artists as Antoine Watteau, in the early 18th century, and Eugène Delacroix and Pierre Auguste Renoir, in the 19th century.

Rubens's father, Jan Rubens, was a prominent lawyer and Antwerp alderman. Having converted from Catholicism to Calvinism, Jan Rubens in 1568 fled Flanders with his family because of persecutions against Protestants. In 1577 Peter Paul was born in exile at Siegen, Westphalia (now in Germany), also the birthplace of his brother Philip and his sister Baldina. There, their father had become the adviser and lover of Princess Anna of Saxony, wife of Prince William I of Orange (William the Silent).

He painted religious frescoes and easel pictures but often introduced recognizable Florentine scenery and portraits of contemporary personages attired in the costumes of the time.

Pordenone - (Italian, 1483-1539)
also known as Giovanni Antonio de' Sacchis
Il Pordenone, byname of Giovanni Antonio de' Sacchis (c. 1483 - 1539) was an Italian painter of the Venetian school. Vasari, his main biographer, identifies him as Giovanni Antonio Licinio.


Biography
He was commonly named Il Pordenone from having been born in 1483 at Corticelli, a village near Pordenone in Friuli. He ultimately dropped the name of Licinio, having quarrelled with his brothers, one of whom had wounded him in the hand; he then called himself Regillo, or De Regillo. His signature runs Antonius Portunaensis, or De Portunaonis. He was created a cavaliere by Charles V.

As a painter Pordenone was a scholar of Pellegrino da S. Daniele, but a leading influence of his style was Giorgione; the popular story that he was a fellow-pupil with Titian under Giovanni Bellini is false. The district about Pordenone had been somewhat fertile in capable painters; but Pordenone is the best known, a vigorous chiaroscurist and flesh painter. The 1911 Britannica states that "so far as mere flesh-painting is concerned he was barely inferior to Titian in breadth, pulpiness and tone". The two were rivals for a time, and Licinio would sometimes affect to wear arms while he was painting. He excelled in portraits; he was equally at home in fresco and in oil-color. He executed many works in Pordenone and elsewhere in Friuli, Cremona, and Venice; at one time he settled in Piacenza, where one of his most celebrated church pictures, St. Catherine disputing with the Doctors in Alexandria is located; the figure of St. Paul in connection with this picture is his own portrait.
