Giorgione was born in Venice, Italy in 1477 where he spent most his life.
Giorgione learned the techniques of nature, lighting, tone, color and naturalism by being an apprentice to Giovanni Bellini. He also took a lot of poetry into his work.
Not much is known of Giorgione's life. However, we do know it was short. He died in 1510 at the age of 33 due to the plague in Venice. He spent most of his life working on his art before he passed away.
Giorgione's name means "Tall George," implying he was a large man.
Giorgione was a painter. Some works of his include, "The Tempest," "Trail of Moses," and "Judgement of Solomon."
Today, we are still unsure of Giorgione's patrons. However, we can assume that Isabella d'Este, a popular patron during his time, could have been a patron of his.
