Cariani (Giovanni Busi) (Italian (Venetian), about 1485 - after 1547)
Cariani was one of a remarkable generation of painters producing colourful altarpieces, devotional pictures and portraits in early sixteenth-century Venice. He was born in Bergamo but moved with his family to Venice, where he probably trained in Giovanni Bellini's workshop, as a contemporary of Lotto and Titian. He returned to Bergamo for six years (1517-1523), during which he painted some of his finest works, including a large altarpiece for the church of S. Gottardo (now in the Brera, Milan). He was last recorded in Venice in 1547.
