Giorgione (, US: //, Italian: [dʒorˈdʒoːne]; born Giorgio Barbarelli da Castelfranco; 1477–78 or 1473–74 – 17 September 1510) was an Italian painter of the Venetian scholarly during the High Renaissance, who died in his thirties. He is known for the elusive poetic setting of his work, though only very nearly six unshakable paintings are firmly recognized to him.
