Biography

  • Known as: Venetian Renaissance painter
  • Born: c. 1435, Venice, Italy
  • Date of death: c. 1495, Naples, Italy

    Though the 15th-century Italian painter Carlo Crivelli was born in Venice, he seemed to have spent most of his time working in Ascoli. His father was Jacobo Crivelli, also a painter.

    He trained in the Vivarini studio before moving to Padua. He may have trained under Jacobello del Fiore.

    His life was colourful. He was sentenced in 1457 to six months imprisonment for kidnapping a sailor's wife. Two years later, he left Italy and lived for some time in Dalmatia, now Croatia. From 1468, he lived until he died in the province of Marches. Most of the work he undertook was to paint altarpieces for churches.

    Crivelli always signed as Carolus Crivellus Venetus until 1490 when he added Miles, due to him having been then knighted (Cavalière) by Ferdinand II of Naples.

    He painted in tempera only.

    Carlo Crivelli died in Naples around 1495.

    The National Gallery, London, own his most famous work, Annunciation with St Emidius (1486).

    Among Crivelli mannerisms in his work are upright rocks and clearly defined sinews.
