Biography

Andrea Previtali FONDAZIONE ZERI CATALOGO Opera Previtali Andrea

Previtali was a pupil of the painter Giovanni Bellini. In Bergamo, he painted a John the Baptist preaching with other saints (1515) for the church of Santo Spirito, a San Benedetto and other saints for Bergamo Cathedral, and a Deposition from the Cross for Sant'Andrea. Other works of his are in the Accademia Carrara.

Previtali gained notice in 1937 in the United Kingdom for "not being Giorgione". Kenneth Clark, then Director of the National Gallery, London, bought two small panels of his from a dealer in Vienna, each with two rustic scenes. He paid £14,000 for them, which was a very high price at the time, despite opposition from his curators. The authoritative ascription of them to Previtali was published in 1938 in the Burlington Magazine by G. M. Richter, based on research by Philip Pouncey, a curator.

Previtali's masterpiece is an Annunciation (illustrated here), which stands over the high altar of the little-known church of Santa Maria del Meschio in Vittorio Veneto.
