Antonello da Messina (1430-1479)

More »
Author name: Antonello da Messina.
(1430, Messina, Sicily – 1479 Messina, sicily). Italian painter. He was trained in Naples, then a cosmopolitan art centre, where he studied the work of Provençal and Flemish artists, possibly even that of Jan van Eyck. He was painter who probably introduced oil painting and Flemish pictorial techniques into mid-15th-century Venetian art. His practice of building form with colour rather than line and shade greatly influenced the subsequent development of Venetian painting. His major works were altarpieces and portraits.
