Vittore Carpaccio tra narrazione e devozione
Finocchi Ghersi, Lorenzo
The author discusses the reasons why late Carpaccio has often been considered unable to gain the same success reserved to his contemporaries as Giorgione, Sebastiano del Piombo or the young Titian at the beginning of XVI Century, concluding that this was mainly due to Carpaccio’s traditional patrons. They clearly preferred works of art connected to late XV Century Venetian pictorial tradition, probably also because of the difficult and dangerous situation of the Republic from the economic and political point of view, but this doesn’t mean that he wasn’t sincerely appreciated, as can testify even his last works.
