Jacopo Tintoretto

Jacopo Tintoretto

(1518 - 1594)
Born: Venice, Italy
Style: Mannerism
Famous Works:
  • Christ Before Pilate (1566-67)
  • Paradise (c. 1588)
  • The Last Supper (1592-94)
Some art historians consider Tintoretto to be the figurehead of Italian Mannerism, while others think of his work as within the tenets of the Italian High Renaissance. As a young artist he worked in the studio of Venetian Renaissance painter Titian, but was also inspired by the work of Michelangelo and the Byzantine masterpieces of his native Venice. His work is a synthesis of the drawing virtuosity of Michelangelo and Titian's lush color. He is considered to have made paintings in the Mannerist style, with his emphasis on technical prowess and the complexity of his figures. His paintings are filled with excitement and succeed at capturing and sustaining the attention of viewers. Tintoretto achieved this affect using unconventional methods of perspective and dimension. Another trademark of Tintoretto was his ability to mesh light and dark colors rapidly with his paintbrush, giving his paintings an air of cast, spiritual light. The speed and energy with which Tintoretto worked, earned him the nickname Il Furioso. He received numerous commissions for Venetian religious fraternities and churches, seemingly leaving examples of his talent in every corner of the town. Some have said that despite being active during the heyday Mannerist, Tintoretto created work with the drama and intensity of the impending Baroque movement.

Great product! I have been making my own panel portraits on black foam board. I add these easel backs to the back and it finishes my upscale gift perfectly and affordably!

I just started using this sketchbook recently, and my first medium was Ink-Tense pencils. The paper worked beautifully, receives the paint, ink, etc, very well. It buckles a little bit when wet, but then flattens out. And so far it lives up to its claim. You CAN use multimedia on both side of the page and it doesn't bleed through. It's a good paper, check it out.

these are my my favorite pearlescent paints. I have been looking to replace my old set. The paints are creamy and so sparkly when mixed with little water. I love to create cards and these are the best.
