Giorgio Schiavone

1436/7 - 1504

His name was Culinovic, but he was born in Dalmatia, and so called Schiavone (i.e. the 'Slavonian') in Italy. He was apprenticed to Squarcione in Padua from about 1456 to 1459. In 1462 he was in Zara, and from 1463 he lived in Sebenico, making occasional visits to Padua. His style is dependent on Mantegna, the most distinguished pupil of Squarcione.
