The Venetian school of Giorgione
Giorgione (1477 / 1478-1510) was an Italian painter from Alto Renacimiento.
Along with Titian and after Giovanni Bellini, he is the initiator of the Venetian school within Renaissance painting, which achieves much of its effect through color and ambience, traditionally opposed to the preference for drawing in Florentine painting.
Giorgione was barely active for 10 years, a reason that makes his work scarce, in addition, the identification problems of his paintings due to the little information that exists about the artist's life, make him a character full of mystery.
He was the first Italian painter who made scenery with figures like moving pictures without devotional, allegorical or historical purposes, and the first one whose colors possessed that ardent and brilliant intensity that would later characterize the work of the Venetian school in general.
He introduced chromatic richness to painting; use of the canvas; the landscape as a fundamental part; gender charts; new subjects, painted pictures without history.
Although died to the 33 years, Giorgione left a legacy that lasted thanks to the continuity they gave him Titian and other artists of the XNUMXth century.
