Giorgione (1477-1510) was Bellini's favorite painter. Under the protection of the "San Geronimo" school, Giorgione reversed all of the standards and hierarchical rules of the period: in the "Madonna di Castelfranco" the human figures are just as important as the landscape.

Giorgione is a very mysterious figure, as there is great uncertainty about the attribution of his works: we are sure only about 6 paintings. However, the very fact that despite this lack of information and material, Giorgione is still regarded as one of the most important figures in the art world, says it all about his talent and revolutionary style.

One of the most innovative features of GIorgione's art was that he painted only with artistic purposes (themes such as religion or commitment, etc are absent): his art was just the result of deep artistic study.
