Giovanni d’Alemagna

(fl 1441; d 1450).

German painter, active in Italy. He collaborated with Antonio Vivarini on various important religious paintings in Venice and Padua. Although it is difficult to distinguish the two artists’ contributions, Giovanni is associated with the St Jerome (1444; Baltimore, MD, Walters A.G.), which carries the signature ‘Johannes’. This painting suggests that Giovanni’s work was generally flatter and more decorative than Antonio’s more naturalistic style.
