(b Crevalcore; d before 1525).

Italian painter and Musician. Although Antonio da Crevalcore was highly regarded by his contemporaries as both a painter of still-lifes and a musician, his artistic oeuvre remains the subject of debate. It has been suggested that he trained in Ferrara, because of the stylistic similarities his work shares with other Ferrarese painters working in Bologna, such as Francesco del Cossa and Ercole de’ Roberti. The influence of Cossa’s Bolognese painting on Crevalcore is clear, especially of the Pala dei Mercanti (Bologna, Pin. N.), but the connection between Cossa’s Ferrarese works or Ercole de’ Roberti’s later Ferrarese paintings and Crevalcore is less evident.

A Baptism of Christ of c. 1390 (Pisa, Mus. N. S Matteo) is closely based on the panel by Niccolò di Pietro Gerini (London, N.G.). In 1397 Turino signed and dated a panel of the Virgin and Child with Two Saints and Two Blessed (Pisa, S Paolo a Ripa d’Arno). In this and panels of the Virgin and Child with Angels (Paris, Louvre) and the Virgin Annunciate and the Archangel Gabriel (both c. 1395; Pisa, Mus. N. S Matteo) Turino’s style is more robust. Figures are larger and more ponderous, recalling earlier Florentine painting. Between ...
