Giorgione Paintings

Giorgione (1477-1510) was an Italian painter whose work is said to mark the beginnings of the Venetian High Renaissance. He studied under Giovanni Bellini and, although he died young, had a very remarkable career as an artist. He was well known for capturing a poetic quality within his paintings; his lights appearing to emerge from an atmospheric darkness, which created a deep sense of mood within his work. He was able to accomplish this by painting from dark to light, rather than starting with lights and then adding darks. This technique is still used today by contemporary oil painters.
