CAROTO, Giovanni Francesco
(b. 1480, Verona, d. ca. 1555, Verona)
Caroto (also Carotis) was a pupil of Liberale to whom he remained true in his early work. In Mantua, he came into personal contact with Mantegna, which lead to a modification of his style. He also adopted ideas from Titian and Raphael. Berenson describes him as an eclecticist. His great pupil, Veronese, seems to have benefited from this.
