Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The greatest of Venetian painters, born at Pieve di Cadore (Fruili); died at Vencie, August 27, 1577.  It has always been believed that at the time of his death he was a centenarian, and he himself wrote to Philip II in 1571 that he was more than ninety-five, which would make 1477 the year of his birth.  But there are good reasons for believing that he made himself out to be older than he was and that he was born about 1487, that is ten years later than the generally accepted date.&nbs (showing 500 of 4089 characters).
