CARIANI, Giovanni
(b. ca. 1485, San Giovanni Bianco, d. ca. 1547, Venezia)


Giovanni Busi, called Cariani, was a Bergamasque, but worked principally in Venice. He was perhaps a pupil of Giovanni Bellini and Palma Vecchio, but was also influenced by Giorgione, Titian and Lotto. In turn, some of his works foreshadow his fellow-Bergamasque, Caravaggio. Some frescoes have recently been discovered in the citadel, Bergamo. Other works are in the Royal Collection, Windsor, and in Bergamo and other museums.
