Defendente Ferrari

active c. 1500-1535

School of Vercelli. Active c. 1510-35. He was probably a pupil of Giovanni Martino Spanzotti, but is gayer in coloring and mood and more prodigal of decorative detail than his master. He was influenced also by Macrino d' Alba and by German, Flemish, and French painters. But from all the influences he formed an individual style, refined and retardataire, more Gothic than Renaissance in spirit.
