Carlo Crivelli - part 3

Carlo Crivelli was probably born in Venice during the early 1430s. Both his father, Jacopo, and his brother, Vittore, were painters. Carlo is mentioned only once in Venetian documents: in 1457, already a master painter, he was fined and sentenced to six months in prison for abducting a sailor's wife.

Though trained in the late Gothic style of Antonio Vivarini, as his earliest works show, and familiar with the drawings of Jacopo Bellini, from which some of his mature compositions derive, Crivelli was profoundly influenced by early Renaissance art in Padua.

For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works, see parts 1 and 2 also.

This is part 3 of a 3-part post on the works of Carlo Crivelli:


1482 Triptych of Camerino:
This work came to the Pinacoteca from the Church of San Domenico in 1811 after Napoleon's spoliations.
While transferring it, the original frame, which probably contained other scenes, was lost. Two of those scenes, the Announcing Angel and the Virgin Annunciate, also came to the Pinacoteca but were exchanged for other paintings. Two parts of the predella, however remained at the Pinacoteca.
