Painter, born Padua, Italy, c.1427;died Venice, Italy, 1507. He and his younger brother Giovanni were the founders of the Venetian school of art. Together they perfected the art of oil-painting, inaugurated by Flemish artists. Gentile completed the work of his father in a series on The Miracle of the Cross. He was sent to Constantinople as one of the greatest Venetian masters, and his portrait of Mohammed II and his Adoration of the Magi are of this period.
