Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco
"Giorgione"

1477-1510 Italy-Early Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco (Giorgione) was from Castelfranco Veneto. He became a pupil of Giovanni Bellini in Venice at an early age, and the works of Leonardo da Vinci influenced him. He was acquainted with Titian at the same studio, who learned much from him about the effect of chiaroscuro. He painted half-length sitters such as the Doges Loredano and Barbarigo. He painted an altarpiece at the Costanzi chapel in the church of Castelfranco which elevated him to high esteem along with his portraiture. He did frescos for nobility houses, which have since suffered the fate of time. In the year of Giorgione's death, the plague killed at least twenty thousand citizens. Many of his works were left unfinished, Titian and Sebastiano del Piombo put the last touches to some. Palma Vecchio was another of his followers.
