Venetian Early Renaissance Artist
Cause of Death - Old Age
Lazzaro Bastiani is best known for his charismatic, expressive holy figures that seem to glide in ethereal atmospheres. The newly emerging painting techniques and styles were a reflection of the transformation that was taking place in Europe, the change from the Dark Ages to a more enlightened, tolerant society. According to Historian Hendrik van Loon, "People were no longer contented to be the audience and sit still while the emperor and the pope told them what to do and what to think. They wanted to be actors upon the stage of life. They insisted upon giving “expression" to their own individual ideas. "
