Marco Basaiti (works 1490-1530)

Born in Venice, around 1450, Marco Basaiti, or Baxiti, according to one of his signatures, was an Italian painter of the High Renaissance era active in Venice during the period 1490-1530.

Basaiti was a contemporary of Giovanni Bellini, with whom he shared similar painting methods and styles. He specialized in the art of the portrait, but also painted religious scenes, like "Call of the Sons of Zebedee" (1510, Gallerie dell Accademia, Venice), and "Christ Praying in the Garden" (1516, Gallerie dell Accademia, Venice).

Among his notable portraits, painted with powerful expressivity, we include "Portrait of a Man in a Cap" (approx. 1500, Museo Correr, Venice), and "Portrait of Doge Agostino Barbarigo".
