Artists who died young gain in stature if they were considered the best during their lifetime
Mozart, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Chopin, Shelly, Matthau, Lautrec, Van Gogh

The Italian Renaissance spawned two contemporaneous masters who set their cities in stardom, on their ears. Their legend without exaggeration has increased over the years – 4 ½ centuries.

In Rome, Raphael born April 6, 1483 Good Friday died in Rome April 6, Good Friday 1620. Age 37

In Venice, Giorgione born 1477, died in Venice in 1510. Age 33.

Between 1477 and 1520—a total of 43 years, they were both alive at the same time from 1483 until 1510—27 years. Their mean age was 35.

Original Format

Blue and green felt-tipped pen and pencil on paper.
