Crivelli, Carlo, Italy 1435 to 1495 Oil Paintings
Carlo Crivelli was born to a family of painters in Venice, Italy in 1435 and died in 1495. He was an Italian painter of the Gothic/Renaissance era. He studied in the Veneto area at the school of Vivarini. In 1458, he left the place he was so familiar with and went on to develop his style in Padua and later in the March of Ancona. Though he never returned to his hometown of Venice, he advertised his heritage through his signature: "Carolus Crivellus Venetos," Carlo Crivelli of Venice. Crivelli was conservative in his style, and painted only with tempera despite the incline of oil paints in his day. His work can be described as courtly, late Gothic, yet urban in setting and more lifelike than earlier Renaissance period work. His subject matter consists of religious material painted with elaborate and allegorical detail.
