Zorzi da Castelfranco, known as Giorgione: an artist who has only four works documented to him - and one that has come down to us - cited in archival documents that can be counted on the fingers of one hand and of which every reconstruction is entirely hypothetical. Yet, after a career span of just over ten years, Giorgione has achieved a fame that has remained unchanged over the centuries. Starting from Giovanni Bellini’s lessons on spirituality and harmony between man and nature, and from the use of color by Giovan Battista Cima da Conegliano, the master from Castelfranco offers a very particular synthesis of musical lyricism, connecting bodies and landscape with a soft and dense light. This tonal painting, set by Cima and Bellini, becomes with Giorgione the language of initiation of the formidable brood protagonist of the great Venetian sixteenth century, the season of Palma il Vecchio, Sebastiano del Piombo and Tiziano Vecellio.
