Biography

Marco Basaiti was born to a family of Greek[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] ancestry in either Venice[11][12] or Friuli[13][14] in 1470[15]. He began to paint actively from 1496 to 1520[16] and is generally believed to have learned to paint in the workshops of Alvise Vivarini. Basaiti worked primarily with religious themes, but he also did portraits. Contrary to the trends of the time, he used very bright colours in rendering his religious subjects.
