Giovanni Bellini—The Early Years
Lecture no. 29 from the course: Great Artists of the Italian Renaissance
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
The first of three lectures on Giovanni Bellini, brother of Gentile, studies his Madonnas and his moving images of the Pietá, or Lamentation. Bellini was Andrea Mantegna's brother-in-law, and their versions of The Agony in the Garden are compositionally similar but stylistically and expressively diverse.
