Italian Early Renaissance Painter, ca.1429-1507
Gentile was born into a family of renowned painters: his father Jacopo Bellini, was a Venetian pioneer in the use of oil paint as an artistic medium; his acclaimed brother was Giovanni Bellini, and his brother-in-law Andrea Mantegna. Gentile was taught painting in the workshop of his father. Although today Gentile is often seen in the shadow of his more famous family members, in his own time he was considered among the greatest living painters in Venice and had no shortage of commissions; his talent as a portraitist revealed itself at an early age.Alexander Yakovlevich GOLOVIN
an important Russian artist and stage designer who designed sets for many productions by Sergei Diaghilev,1863-1930Jan Hackaert
(1628-1685) was a Dutch Golden Age painter.
He travelled in Germany and Switzerland, and painted and sketched mostly landscapes.He would sketch miners at work in the mountains, and on more than one occasion this caused him trouble because the workers couldn't understand what he was doing. They felt he was either a spy or hexing them and made a complaint. Because Italianate landscapes were so fashionable, his Lake Zurich was mistaken for an Italian lake for years.
He painted the landscape backgrounds for other painters, such as Nicolas Berchem and Adriaen van de Velde.
