About the artist
Heavily influenced by Titian, Tintoretto aspired to merge Titian's colour usage with Michelangelo's dynamic shapes. Often labeled a Mannerist, Tintoretto was more driven by narrative drama than style. Venice was his home for most of his life, with a single recorded trip to Mantua in 1580.
After Titian died, Tintoretto and Veronese emerged as leading painters in Venice. Tintoretto managed a large workshop and executed numerous assignments for the Doge's Palace. His remarkable series of paintings for the Scuola di San Rocco are still situated in their original spot.
