barbari, jacopo de'


barbari, jacopo de'

Venetian painter and engraver influenced by Antonello da Messina. Barbari probably painted the first signed and dated (1504) pure still life (a dead partridge, gauntlets, and arrow pinned against a wall). Until c. 1500 he remained in Venice. A large engraved panorama of the city is among the Venetian works attributed to him. An acquaintance of Albrecht Durer, he moved to the north where he worked as a court painter in the German cities of Wittenberg, Nurnberg, and Frankfurt an der Oder and finally settled at the Dutch court. Like Durer, who consulted him on technique, Barbari engraved on copper and made woodcuts.
