(b ?Venice, c.1430/5; d Ascoli Piceno, 1493/5). Italian painter. He always signed himself as a Venetian, but he is only once recorded in the city (in 1457 when he was fined and sentenced to six months' imprisonment for committing adultery) and he spent most of his career working in the Marches, particularly at Ascoli Piceno; he also lived for some time at Zara in Dalmatia (now Zadar, Croatia), which at this time was part of Venetian territory.
