Palma il Giovane

Iacopo Negretti, known as “Palma il Giovane” (Venice, 1544-1628) and Iacopo Palma il Vecchio’s great-nephew, was a complete and elegant artist and is considered the greatest Venetian artist at the end of the 1500s.

He trained in the Roman Mannerist style and the Venetian school. He studied Raphael and Michelangelo’s work and worked with Titian, even completing his painting Pietà (1570, Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice).

He later worked in the Bergamo and Brescia areas, influenced by three major Lombard painters from the 1500s:  Romanino, Moretto and Savoldo. Many of his works are now found in the mountain valleys and towns in this area. His greatest works are all in Venice, however: the canvases for the Sala del Maggior Consiglio in the Doge’s Palace (1578-84); the cycle for the Oratorio dei Crociferi (1583-91), portraying ceremonies and scenes from the life of Venetian nobles; the Decollation of St. John the Baptist (c. 1580) in the Chiesa dei Gesuiti o S. Maria Assunta; the Wedding of Cana (1572) in San Giacomo dell’Orio.
