Vittore Carpaccio

active 1490; died 1525/6

The name is correctly Scarpazza, and was Latinised into Carpathius; many different spellings are recorded. He was probably trained by Lazzaro Bastiani, and certainly influenced by Giovanni Bellini.

There are dates from 1490 to 1495 on pictures of his 'Saint Ursula' series in Venice; other cycles and altarpieces exist, many of them signed and dated. His style evolved very little.
