Girolamo da Santacroce

active 1516; died 1556?

Girolamo da Santacroce was born in Bergamo but was active in Venice for most of his career. He was a pupil of Gentile Bellini who left him drawings of orientals in his will (1507). Afterwards he probably worked in the shops of Giovanni Bellini and Cima. There are signed and dated paintings from 1516, often in the mould of works by higher profile Venetian contemporaries.
