Carlo Crivelli (krēvĕl´lē), b. c.1430, d. after 1493, Venetian painter, who worked chiefly in the Marches. His paintings, notable for their rather harsh conception, include the Virgin and Child in the Ascoli Cathedral; a large altarpiece (National Gall., London); and Coronation of the Virgin (Brera, Milan). His work reveals a crystalline, linear technique and a fondness for elegant decorative motifs. Works in the United States include three portrayals of the Pietà (Mus. of Fine Arts, Boston; Fogg Mus., Cambridge; Detroit Inst. of Arts); several of the Madonna (Walters Art Gall., Baltimore; National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.; Metropolitan Mus.); and St. George on Horseback (Gardner Mus., Boston).
