Palma Vecchio

1480-1528 Italy/High Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Palma Vecchio, Jacopo Palma, (or his document signing, Jacomo de Antonio de Negreto), sometimes referred to as the Old, was born at Serinalta in Bergamo and moved to Venice where he remained for his life. Giovanni Bellini was his only known master, but Giorgione and Titian influenced him greatly. He was known to have painted beautiful women in religious subjects, and he painted Altarpieces for churches in Venice. His works were never signed. He signed his will on 28/07/1528 and died two days later. Many of his works were unfinished and completed by his students. His grand-nephew Antonio Jacopo, known as Palma Giovane, also became a renowned artist.
