Notes

Summary:
Bassano executed this painting on Verona marble, masterfully integrating the patterning of the marble into his composition. In the tradition of Venetian painters, Bassano was highly regarded for his brilliant manipulation of light and color. For example, in the D'Arcy octagonal marbles, Bassano has harmonized vibrant blues and yellows with the sublime roses and whites of the background surface. The preciousness of material and the treatment of the figures represent a courtly style of painting often called Mannerism. The figures are highly elegant, graceful, and peculiarly elongated. The sophistication of Italian Mannerism, as well as the sumptuous marble and ebony used by Bassano, appealed especially to aristocratic patrons.
