Vittore Carpaccio Wall Art

Vittore Carpaccio (Born 1465) was born in Venice. He was the son of a leather merchant called Piero Scarpazza. He studied under Gentile Bellini. He was a painter from Venice. He’s best remembered for a series of 9 paintings that came to be known as The Legend of Saint Ursula. Carpaccio’s style was to some extent conservative, showing diminutive influence from the Venetian trends. His art has been rather abandoned by comparison with other contemporaries in Venice, such as Giorgione or Giovanni Bellini. He was influenced by the style of Early Netherlandish and Antonello da Messina’s art. Majority of his works were executed from 1490 to 1519, rating him among the early masters of the Venetian Renaissance. Upon entering the Humanist circles of Venice, Carpaccio changed his family name to Carpaccio.

In the early years of the 16th century, the artist embarked on the works that have since awarded him the distinction as the leading eastern painter of his age. He executed another notable series of panels from 1502 to 1507. This one was for the Scuola di San Giorgio degli. Each of his work in the Schiavoni series concentrates on a single episode in the lives of the three Patron Saints of Dalmatian: St. Trifon, St. George and St. Jerome. These works are thought of as “Eastern” because they offer evidence of a new fascination with the Levant. Moreover, several of the scenes deal directly with translation and conversion and other cross-cultural issues that affect people across the country.
