Barbarelli, Gorgio

Barbarelli, Gorgio (called Giorgione), a distinguished Italian painter, was born at Castel- franco, near Treviso, in 1477, and attended the school of Giovanni Bellini at Venice. He soon manifested great ability, and wvas the first of the Venetian painters who broke through the timid and constrained style that prevailed at the time of Bellini, and introduced a freedom of outline, a boldness of handling, and a vigorous effect of chiaro-oscuro which were unknown before him. He died in 1511. Of his oil-paintings the principal are, the picture of St. Omobono, in the school, of Sarti at Venice: — Christ Bearing his Cross, in the Church of San Roch: — and in the school of San Marco, a picture of that saint appeasing the tempest. One of his most esteemed works is the Finding of Moses, at Milan.
