Cima da Conegliano
The ancient hills in the Treviso's country, the castle of Conegliano, the church of San Leonardo, the castles of Saint Salvatore and Collalto: We, children of the twentieh centurycan understand how these enchanting landscapes were half a millennium ago thanks to the Giovanni Battista Cima paintbrush's.

Giovanni Battista Cima was a very gifted painter that was influenced by the school of the capital, the one of Venice that, at the end of the fifteen century, has lived one of the most important period of its arts.

The arts of Cima ranged from altarpieces to polyptychs, but everyone have been reached by the background; by the landscapes of its land, whose the artist always remains tied while is operating in Venice and in other places and that masterfully plays as a worthy scene of his Madonnas and saints.

Just an enthroned Madonna with his child among angels and saints are the subject of the only work of the Cima that can be seen in his hometown: the Shovel that is preserved in the Cathedral of Conegliano;
a masterpiece that testifies to the influence he has receive by the Venetian school, especially from the experience with Giovanni Bellini.

In our territory, in Vittorio Veneto, is preserved a triptych of Cima, into the Diocesan Secred Art Museum.
