Marco Basaiti

Marco Basaiti (c. 1470 – 1530) was a Venetian Greek painter and a rival of Giovanni Bellini. His best known works are Christ Praying in the Garden (1516) and the Calling of St. Peter and St. Andrew.Call of the Sons of Zebedee


Marco Basaiti was born to a family of Greek ancestry in either Venice or Friuli in 1470. He began to paint actively from 1496 to 1520 and is generally believed to have learned to paint in the workshops of Alvise Vivarini. Basaiti worked primarily with religious themes, but he also did portraits. Contrary to the trends of the time, he used very bright colours in rendering his religious subjects.
