Girolamo Savoldo

Girolamo Savoldo (1480-1485 – after 1548), also called Girolamo da Brescia, was an Italian High Renaissance painter active mainly in Venice, but he also worked in other cities in Northern Italy. He is known for his subtle use of color and chiaroscuro and the sober realism of his works, which are primarily religious subjects, with a few portraits. There are about 40 paintings by Girolamo Savoldo, and six are portraits. He was profoundly respected in his lifetime, and a few repetitions of works were commissioned, and others did copies.
