designer loves art...Giovanni Bellini...176

not many can claim to have made their city a center to the arts

this is Giovanni Bellini

born in Venice, it is believed he and his brother started working in his father's workshop. he is attributed the elevation of Venice as a center of renaissance painting. although he started working with tempera he moved on to oils, medium in which he would start making his mark. he was able to add depth to color, and the play of a natural environment, making his pictures come alive. something important is that he started fussing the contour lines, which allowed him to play with the transition of light. not only is his composition extraordinary, but his ability to bring life to his subjects  is indescribable.
