Antonello da Messina - Famous Paintings

This painter from Sicily grew up during the Italian Renaissance and the early Dutch painting cast a spell on him. In spite of his Sicilian lineage Antonello’s works were impressive to the northern region of Italy, especially Venice, which was a bit surprising. His outstanding work “Sibiu Crucifixion”of 1455 is in Muzeul de Arta in Bucharest. Antonello’s reputed art work of the same period was “Crucifixion” in the Royal Museum at Antwerp. The Flemish influence was detectable in his early works. Using standard iconography and Flemish style he painted in 1460 “Salting Madonna”.In all his works the volumetric representations were very well taken care of. Antonello’s other famous paintings 1460 were “Abraham served by the angels” and “St. Jerome penitent” which are now kept in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria.

“Salvator Mundi” and “St.Gregory’s Polyptych” are his other masterpieces.
