Dedicated to creating devotional images and painting altarpieces, Giovanni Bellini's work is a primary example of the early Renaissance artistic tradition that came of age in Venice. The Indianapolis Museum of Art has a number of works by this master, and they have drawn on these works to create this insightful exhibit that explores the paintings and the creative process by which they were created. Through the four marvelous sections of this site, visitors can learn about the process involved in his studio by which copies were made of his works, and also how some of his creations (such as his famed "Madonna") have been preserved for future generations to enjoy. One section that should not be missed is the "Invisible Bellini" section, where visitors can learn about what lies beneath the visible surface of his masterworks.
