Another original; by the same artist. NOTE.--Veneziano Bonifacio, a painter, who flourished, according to Ridolfo, in the finest era of Venetian art, was born in 1491, died in 1553. A. Morelli in his "Notitia" asserts that he was born at Verona, though all other authors agree that Venice was his birth place. He was a scholar of the Elder Palma. The admirable works of Titian he studied with the greatest attention, and formed a style combining the excellencies of both. His compositions are abundant and ingenious, and his agreeable coloring nearly approaches the excellence of Titian. Ridolfo mentions many large works by him in the State Palace at Venice and in other places in the same city.
