Palma, Jacopo

Palma, Jacopo, called Palma Vecchio, to distinguish him from his grand-nephew, Palma Giovane, was born in 1480. He began to paint early under the influence of the Bellini, but, coming to Venice, is said to have been taught by Titian. His best works are The Three Graces in the Dresden Gallery, and six devotional pictures in Santa Maria Formosa at Venice. He died about 1528.
