Italian High Renaissance Painter

Giovanni Bellini was born in Venice around 1430 and is considered one of the key figures in the development of the Venetian Renaissance. He was trained by his father, Jacopo Bellini, and later by Antonello da Messina. He was highly respected in his time, and his workshop was one of the largest in Venice.

Bellini's paintings are characterized by their use of light and color, and he was known for his ability to create a sense of depth and space in his works. He was also one of the first artists to use oil paint, which allowed him to create a smoother and more luminous surface.

Bellini's work had a significant influence on the development of Venetian painting, and he was a teacher to many of the great artists of the time, including Titian. His most famous works include "The Madonna and Child" (1460), "St. Francis in Ecstasy" (c. 1480), and "The Feast of the Gods" (1514).

Giovanni Bellini died in Venice in 1516 at the age of 86. Today, his works can be found in museums and galleries around the world, and he is regarded as one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance.
