Today, the work of painters embraces the current reality and the forecast of future universes, but in this city, you will discover that this has already been done starting five centuries ago. According to seventeenth-century news, it was the home of the artist Giorgione between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Today, Casa Giorgione http://www.museocasagiorgione.it/ is a museum located in the historic center of Castelfranco Veneto. A wonderful dive into the past. In the upper part of the house, there are only a few paintings, with themes or characters associated with science attributed to Giorgione. In the nearby Duomo, you can admire the beautiful Madonna altarpiece sitting on a high throne.
Tradition holds that he was handsome and amorous. He was born in Castelfranco Veneto around 1477. His best qualities, were epitomized in The Tempest (painting around 1505, a milestone in Renaissance landscape painting, with its dramatization of a storm about to break.), where you can observe a pastoral scene. Painter who was one of the initiators of a High Renaissance style in Venetian art, Giorgione (Giorgio da Castelfranco), was extremely influential Italian artist. In Venice, he died into a November day, 1510, because a correspondence dated this year mentions his death as having occurred probably caused by the plague that was raging in Venice.
He was one of the first Italian painters to abandon the traditional medium (the egg tempera), in favor of the new oil paint. His ingenuity was evident both in his choice of subject matter and in his technique. He remains one of the most enigmatic of Renaissance painters. About 1490, as young painter, Giorgione went to Venice to study under the greatest Venetian master of that time, Bellini. His feeling for nature is related to the philosophical naturalism of the contemporary humanists. In portraiture, he made a most profound impression, and many Venetian painters imitated him.
He approached portraiture with a humanistic outlook. In modern European art history, Giorgione was the first painter to unify poetry and naturalness. The modern painting really begins with him. Together with Leonardo, he was the first pure painter of modern art history and his influence on generations of painters after him surpassed all of his contemporaries. In his painting, the delicate attention to detail allowed a special intimacy to form between subject and spectator.
