Biography and information
 

1500, Treviso — 1571, Venezia. Italian painter. Master of the Venetian school. The Pupil Of Titian. Influenced by Pordenone, Lotto, Moretto.

The first order received in 1518.

Worked in Venice, Treviso, Milan, Genoa.

According to the testimony of Vasari in 1538 visited France and worked at Fontainebleau, and then in Augsburg on the orders of the patrician family of the Fuggers.

Paris Bordone (Italian. Paris Bordone) (1500, baptized July 5, Treviso — January 29, 1571, Venice) — Italian painter of the Venetian school, the representative of mannerism.

Joined bottega — the Studio of Titian in 1516 and remained there until 1518. Vasari, by which it is known most of the facts of Bordone, writes that he did not spend many years with Titian, preferring to devote himself to the imitation of manners of Giorgione. (If he found a way of training with Titian unacceptable also indicate that Titian took the first order, received a young artist than hurt him). Still, the influence of Giorgione on the Bordon was not directly but indirectly through Titian, Bordone manner which took so well that over the centuries some of his paintings was considered a Titian. (For example, «Baptism of Christ» in the Capitoline gallery). Still, his style is more manneristic than the teachers, with warmer colours, effectively swirling drapery and figures in slightly strange positions.

The greatest creative flowering Bordone was 1520−1530.

In 1520-x Bordone designs one of the favorite motifs of the early Titian, treating traditional themes «Madonna with saints» and «St. Family» as an idyllic scene of tranquility and quiet conversation amid the bucolic landscape, with green meadows, round the trees, the distant hills (St. Family with St Catherine, St Petersburg, State. The Hermitage, St. Family, Milan, Pinacoteca di Brera; Madonna with saints, Glasgow Art gallery; Madonna with St George and St John the Baptist, Moscow, GOS. Museum of fine arts. A. S. Pushkin). The widely spread beauty of the landscape and the romantic intonation determine the character of the altars, the Battle of St. George with the dragon (CA. 1525, Vatican, Pinacoteca). The best and most famous work of Bordone is the monumental canvas the miracle of the ring (1534, Venice, gallery of the Academy), dedicated to one of the historic legends of Venice — transfer by a fisherman of Venice the Doge the ring received from St. Mark. Drawing on traditions of historical and narrative songs of the masters of the XV century Gentile Bellini and Carpaccio, the artist creates a historical track of the new type. A huge role in the film played by the magnificent architecture, creating an atmosphere of celebration that defines the image origin of the whole composition. Rich contrasts of light and deep shadows accentuate the grandeur and richness of the architectural forms of the open pavilion where sits the Doge and his entourage, the power of a tremendous arch in the passage which offers a magnificent panorama stretching to the depth of marble palaces, bathed in sunshine. The same view became the main motive background in the painting, Bathsheba (CA. 1543, Cologne, Museum Wallraf-Richartz-Ludwig).

In 1538 he entered the service of the king Francis I at Fontainebleau, where he painted portraits of the king and courtiers. However, no trace of them in the French collections could not be found (two paintings in the Louvre — late acquisition). Caressed honors, in 1540, he went to Augsburg, where he painted in the Fugger Palace (paintings have not survived). Then returned to Venice, where he died January 19, 1570

Bordone worked in Treviso, Vicenza, Crema, Genoa and Turin. His numerous portraits, among which the most successful are considered female, distinguished by the splendor and richness of color, the so-called portraits of courtesans. After talking to Lorenzo Lotto in 1540-ies. his portraits have gained a deeper degree of intimacy.

Large-scale historical canvases Bordone less elegant. Also wrote on religious subjects. Performed many important fresco cycles in Venice, Treviso and the Cures, to the present day is not preserved. Also wrote allegorical and mythological subjects.

Work Bordone combines the nobility of style and the Golden harmony of colors, inherited from Titian, as well as realistic human figures. But his Nude figures are slightly skewed, and the gestures unnatural and affectioante. The best and most famous work of Bordone is the monumental canvas the miracle of the ring (1534, Venice, gallery of the Academy), dedicated to one of the historic legends of Venice — transfer by a fisherman of Venice the Doge the ring received from St. Mark. Drawing on traditions of historical and narrative songs of the masters of the XV century Gentile Bellini and Carpaccio, the artist creates a historical track of the new type. A huge role in the film played by the magnificent architecture, creating an atmosphere of celebration that defines the image origin of the whole composition. Rich contrasts of light and deep shadows accentuate the grandeur and richness of the architectural forms of the open pavilion where sits the Doge and his entourage, the power of a tremendous arch in the passage which offers a magnificent panorama stretching to the depth of marble palaces, bathed in sunshine. The same view became the main motive background in the painting, Bathsheba (CA. 1543, Cologne, Museum Wallraf-Richartz-Ludwig). At the National gallery of London is «Daphnis and Chloe» and a portrait of a woman, and «the Holy Family» in Bridgwater house. Other important work is the «Madonna» in the collection of Tadini, Lovere, the paintings in the Duomo of Treviso, two mythological pictures at the Villa Borghese and Palazzo Doria at Rome, the «chess Players» in Berlin, a little-known portrait in the ownership of the Landgrave of Hesse at Kronberg, and a «Baptism of Christ» in Philadelphia. He often painted the Madonna with saints in the landscape (sacra conversazione), and other religious subjects, for example, «Christ and teachers» (Museum of Isabella Gardner, Boston). The chronology of the works of Bordone difficult to trace, particularly because he was able to use one sketch of poses for different pictures for different parts of Europe, and it is written within a decade.

Fountains are always attractive. Such hydraulic units were of special importance for ancient people, Asian and Mediterranean civilizations. Both the rich and the poor needed water and looked for it. Painters did not neglect the decorated source of water and it took its own place among the graphic codes. Let's try to decypher this secret symbol of the past and its transformations. So, meet a…
