Giovanni Bellini 1430 - 1516


Italian Version


GIOVANNI BELLINI: (1430?-1516), Jacopo's younger son, continuously developed new methods throughout his life. 



His works

 His early paintings used firm lines to produce clear shapes in balanced arrangement. His later work showed more softness in detail and greater freedom in its planning. He developed a gentle feeling of mood, often based on small figures in quiet  poses surrounded by an airy landscape.



Religious themes

 Giovanni based many of his works on religious themes. His Saint Francis in Ecstasy appears in the Francis of Assisi, saint article. Giovanni Bellini's works also include Feast of the Gods in the Gods in the Widener Collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.

"Madonna con bambino" 1460-64
