Family of Venetian painters. Antonio (c.1420–76/84) seldom worked independently. He collaborated first with his brother-in-law, the German-born Giovanni d'Alemagna (active 1441–50), and then from the 1450s with his own younger brother, Bartolomeo (c.1432–c.1499). The pictures produced by these partnerships are usually large polyptychs with stiff, archaic-looking figures and very elaborate carved and gilded frames in the Gothic tradition.
