(b ?Orzinuovi, nr. Brescia, c.1450; d Vicenza, 11 Oct. 1523). Italian painter. He probably trained in Venice, but he worked mainly in Vicenza, where he was the leading painter of his day, producing many altarpieces for local churches. His style has been well characterized by S. J. Freedberg (Painting in Italy: 1500–1600, 1971) as ‘gloomily impressive’.
