Carlo Crivelli (1435-1493)

Carlo Crivelli was a brilliant Venetian Painter whose dates of birth and death are approximative (1435-1493), and whose formation is linked to the Padua School of painting, during the Early Renaissance period.

A student of Perugino and a borrower of methods from Jacopo Bellini, Carlo Crivelli is known for authoring works like "Saint Bernardin of Siena", "Virgin and Child Enthroned" (1476, Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest), the lovely "Madonna della Candeletta" (1492, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan), and "Madonna and Child Enthroned with a Donor" (1470, National Gallery of Art, Washington).

Almost all of Crivelli's chosen themes are religious, rendered in a Gothic style, with intricate ornamentation, and depicting expressive characters full of otherworldly affectation.

e.g. Tintoretto, Pieta, etc.
