 Lazzaro Bastiani



Lazzaro Bastiani        Pages: 1

(b Venice; fl 1449; d 1512).

Italian painter. He is first recorded in 1449, as a painter in Venice and in 1460 he was paid for an altarpiece in S Samuele there. Although no extant work is securely documented, several are signed and two are dated. The influence of Andrea del Castagno is clear in his early works, of the 1460s: the signed mosaic of St Sergius (Venice, S Marco), the Archangel Gabriel (Padua, Mus. Civ.) and the signed Pietà (Venice, S Antonino). Also assigned to this period are the Adoration of the Magi (New York, Frick), the polyptych of St Francis (Matera, S Francesco), the St Jerome (Monopóli Cathedral) and the ‘tarot cards of Mantegna’, which show links with the work of Bartolomeo Vivarini. A painting of the Story of David (destr. 1485) was commissioned by the Scuola di S Marco in Venice in 1470.
