Venetian painter, painted portraits, religious and mythological works, landscapes. He was strongly influenced by Giorgione and his teacher, Titian (despite disliking the latter intensely). He worked for King Francis I of France; an important member of the first Fontainebleau School. His works, for all their realism and thoroughness of execution, demonstrate a problem with anatomy and perspective

Paris Bordone’s major works are Rest on the Flight into Egypt, 1520–30 (London: Courtauld Institute); The Presentation of the Ring of St. Mark to the Doge, c. 1535 (Venice: Galleria dell’ Accademia).
