Antonio and Bartolomeo Vivarini
The Venetian brothers Antonio (c. 1415-1484) and Bartolomeo Vivarini (c. 1432-1499) created old-fashioned altarpieces with stiff figures and elaborately carved frames. Antonio’s son, Alvise (c. 1445–1505) did more modern work in the style of Bellini.
Their’s major works are The Madonna with the Blessed Child, c. 1440 (Venice: Gallerie dell’Accademia); Sts. Francis and Mark, 1440–46 (London: National Gallery)
