Antonio da Vendri

about 1476/7 - 1555

Antonio da Vendri worked in Verona between 1517-45; his name appears in documents not only as a painter, but also as a baker and tailor. One of his brothers was a painter too. He painted a 'Madonna and Child with Two Angels' in 1518 (Verona, Museo Civico Di Castelvecchio), and was commissioned by Cardinal Bernardo Clesio to paint frescoes (now lost) in Toblino Castle near Levico, Trent, in 1536. A fresco fragment, possibly by Antonio, showing the Madonna and Child and Saint Roch, survives in the church of S. Maria in Stelle, Verona.
