Overview of the painting :

Madonna with the saints Anthony of Padua and Roja – Giorgione. 1500-1510. Oil on canvas. 92 x 133

   The greatest master of the High Renaissance, a representative of the Venetian school, Giorgione (1476 / 1477-1510), with his mature, based on the sensitive interaction of color and light, laid the foundation for a new technique in Italy – oil painting. She allowed to accurately convey the nuances of light shades, the outlines of figures and objects.

   Giorgione was one of the first among Italian artists to pay great importance to the naturalistic landscape in paintings of mythological, historical and even religious subjects. The characters of this amazing altar image that strikes with their special mood are depicted in such a way that it seems that they are not represented in the interior of the cathedral, but in the lap of nature. The subtle poetry of the canvas is created by the visual fusion of human figures with the landscape achieved by light.
