Life of ALTICHIERO DA ZEVIO


 Advertisements

 
  Italian painter. He probably came from Zevio near Verona and is
  sometimes considered to be the founder of the Veronese School, although the only surviving
  example of his work in that town is a fresco in Sta Anastasia. Most of his surviving work is in
  Padua, where he had a hand in fresco cycles in the Basilica of St Anthony (between 1372 and
  1379) and in the Oratory of St George (between 1377 and 1384), in the latter of which he
  collaborated with an artist called Avanzo, who is otherwise unknown and whose contribution to
  the work is uncertain.
  Altichiero s gravity and the solidity and voluminousness of his figures clearly
  reveal his debt to Giotto s frescos in the Arena Chapel of Padua. But his pageant-like scenes with
  their elaborate architectural views express the taste of the late 14th century for Gothic intricacy,
  while his naturalism in the study of plants and animals formed the point of departure for a new
  style which is reflected in Pisanello.
