DOSSI, Dosso

Italian High Renaissance Painter, ca.1490-1542 Although responsive to a wide range of outside influences, the most important of which were probably those of Giorgione in Venice and Raphael in Rome, he was an artist of great originality with a strong feeling for effects of light and colour. Landscape plays a prominent and highly expressive role in his work. He was employed, as were also the poets Matteomaria Boiardo (?1441-94) and Ludovico Ariosto, at the court of Ferrara, which was internationally renowned for its culture, especially its musical life and collections of art: one of his best-known works is an illustration of a magical scene from Ariosto's poetry,  Related Paintings of DOSSI, Dosso :. | Portrait of a Warrior sd | Diana and Calisto dfhg | Madonna in Glory with SS.John the Baptist and john the Evangelist | Sibyl | Witchcraft (Allegory of Hercules) dfg |
