Giovanni Battista Cima da Conegliano (Italian (Venetian), about 1459 - about 1517)
Cima was a highly successful painter in Venice, specialising in large altarpieces for churches and smaller devotional paintings for private patrons. Originally from Conegliano, near Treviso, on the Venetian mainland, Cima moved to Venice at an early stage in his career and may have trained with Giovanni Bellini. His work betrays Bellini's influence, particularly in his compositions of the Virgin and Christ Child enthroned with saints, and in the treatment of light in his landscape backgrounds. Demand for Cima's painting was considerable and he ran a busy workshop producing numerous works for Venice and the Veneto.
