Biography - Antonello da Messina
(änt n l´l dä m s–s ´nä) (KEY) , c.1430–1479, Italian painter, b. Messina. Antonello appears to have had early contact with Flemish art. In his deft handling of the oil medium—his rendering of transparent surfaces and minute landscape details—a strong Northern influence can be seen. About 1475 he went to Venice. There in 1476 he painted the San Cassiano Altarpiece (Kunsthistorisches Mus., Vienna), of which only fragments now exist (Vienna). His style affected the art of Bellini and other Venetians. He was also an excellent portrait painter; examples of his portraiture are in the Metropolitan Museum, the Philadelphia Museum, the Louvre, and in Berlin. Other paintings by him are Ecce Homo (Metropolitan Mus.); Madonna and Child (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.); Pietà (Venice); Crucifixion (Antwerp).
