Brief Biography-Giovanni Battista Farinati or Battista da Verona, whose style would be classed as mannerist, was born in 1532. He studied in the atelier of Antonio Badile in Verona, along with Paolo Veronese. He also received instruction from his uncle Paolo Farinati. He undertook several works with Veronese at the Villa Soranza near Castelfranco and in the Doge’s Palace in Venice. He worked in many locations including Mantua where he died, there he worked for the Gonzaga family. One of his strong influences was Titian which is evident throughout his works. He is also referred to as Giovanni Battista Zelotti.
