Paris Bordone - Italian Artist From Art History

Art History - Historical Artists > B > Paris Bordone


Historical Artist - Paris Bordone (1500 - 1571)

Although born in Treviso, Paris Bordone spent much of his life in Venice beginning in 1518. He first studied under Titian but left because he disagreed with his instructor’s teaching methods. Bordone preferred to paint religious and female subjects. In addition to working in Venice, he also spent time in France and Augsburg. Bordone is best at his smaller cabinet pieces, showing half-figures, semi-undressed men and women from mythology or religious stories in a muscular interaction despite the crowded space. Paris Bordone subsequently executed many important mural paintings in Venice, Treviso and Vicenza, all of which have perished. Bordone's pictures are of unequal merit, and often repeat postures, including the drape an overarching arm over the superior portion of the canvas.
