Bellini, Giovanni

Additional Links

Painter, brother of Gentine Bellini, born Padua, Italy, c.1428;died Venice, Italy, 1516. He surpassed his brother in poetic imagination and in the rich coloring so characteristic of the Venetian school. Among his famous altar-pieces, consisting usually of Madonnas enthroned and accompanied by saints, are those done for the churches of Santa Maria dei Frari, Saint Zaccaria, and Saint Giobbe, in Venice. The Academy of Venice contains the last, and another fine group, The Doge Barbarigo before the Infant Christ. Angels with musical instruments add a subtle harmony to his groups. His excellence as a portrait painter is evident in the well-known Doge Loredano of the National Gallery, in London.
