Bartolomeo Vivarini

about 1432? - after 1499?

Bartolomeo was the younger brother of Antonio Vivarini. He at first collaborated with Antonio and his early work (like the 'Virgin and Child with Saints' in the Collection) is not easily distinguishable from his brother's except where it is signed.

His own developed style depends on that of Mantegna, as is first clear in altarpieces of 1464 and 1465 in Venice and Naples. He was active between 1450 and 1491.
