A brief annotation
Jacopo Robusti known as Tintoretto (1518/1519-1594) was an Italian painter and a notable representative of the Venetian school of the Renaissance period. His religious and mythological paintings stand out with unconventional and complex composition, translucent brushwork, the play of light and shadow and postural dynamics, which express emotional strain and the drama of the moment. The most famous paintings by Tintoretto include The Miracle of the Slave (1548), The Birth of John the Baptist (late 1540s), The Crucifixion (1565), and The Last Supper (1594).
