Collection: Tintoretto

Tintoretto – an italian mannerist painter 

Tintoretto was born on Sep 29, 1518. He was a famous Italian painter and an important student of the Renaissance school. He was also called Jacopo Robusti at a young age during his original name Jacopo Comin. His work is mostly marked with startling and theatrical gestures, muscular characters with a clear and unwavering viewpoint. The use of light and color in his paintings amplifies convention. He was considered one of the most remarkable Venetian painters of the sixteenth century after Titian. He worked under the guidance of Titian for a long period and looked up to the exceptional structural procedure of Michelangelo and was fascinated by the use of vibrant color by Titian and tried to blend the two techniques in his productions. The artist decorated his studio with the inscription, Michelangelo's design, and Titian's Color. Tintoretto was a very ambitious painter, and his exceptional spirit and vigor in the art earned him the title, 'Il Furioso.' His remembered works include 'The Last Supper, 'Paradise,' 'Susanna and the Elders', 'Vulcan Surprising Venus and Mars,' 'The Law and the Golden Calf,' 'Saint Mark Rescuing the Slave' and 'Christ and the Adulteress.' 

An independent painter who thrived through life

From around 1539, he began working independently as a painter. He started getting commissions from churches, civic buildings, and Venetian elites and worked on several altarpieces, portraits, and mythological scenes. His work is mostly marked with startling and theatrical gestures, muscular characters with a clear and persistent viewpoint. The use of light and color in his paintings exemplifies the conventional 'Venetian School' of paintings. Though his independent work style set him apart, his work was often linked with the Mannerist painting style prevalent during the Late Renaissance. He died on May 31, 1594
