Bartolomeo Vivarini (1440-1500 ) was an Italian painter, known to have worked from 1450 to 1499. His brother Antonio and his nephew (also possibly his pupil) Alvise were also painters. He learned oil painting from Antonello da Messina, and is said to have produced, in 1473, the first oil picture done in Venice. Housed in the basilica of San Zanipolo, it is a large altar-piece in nine divisions, representing Augustine and other saints.   more from wikipedia »
