Paris Bordon (Italian (Venetian), 1500 - 1571)
Bordon's painting combines the rich colour of Venetian painters with the consciously ornate compositions of mannerist artists. He was born in Treviso but trained in Venice, possibly in Titian's studio. He came across the central Italian mannerist style through artists such as Vasari, who came to Venice to work on various projects. Apart from some years in Milan and at the French court in Fontainbleau, Bordon spent most of his working life in Venice, before retiring to Treviso. He painted some religious subjects but his mildly erotic secular paintings secured his international reputation.
