Girolamo Savoldo

Girolamo Savoldo (1480-1485 – after 1548), also called Girolamo da Brescia, was an Italian High Renaissance painter active mostly 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 mostly religious subjects, with a few portraits. There are about 40 paintings by Girolamo Savoldo, where six of them are portraits. He was profoundly respected in his own lifetime, and a few repetitions of works were commissioned, and copies done by others.
