Giovanni Bellini - 1485-1490

Although the concept and design of this portrait, considered to be among the finest of late cinquecento portraits extant, are derived from a Flemish prototype, the monumental simplicity of design, impersonal mood and generalized surface betray the classical traditions of Italy.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
