Madonna and Child, Giovanni Bellini

Another of Bellini’s strikingly individualistic faces for religious subjects, and the superb painting ability that caused Durer to write of Bellini after a visit to Venice: “He is very old, and still he is the best painter of them all.”

    Maybe not the greatest artist, but definitly my favorite . Not just the way he handles color,subtle and direct , but the way he treats the space around the forms – you can feel the air around them!
