Venetian School School of Italian painting that flourished in the 15th, 16th, and 18th centuries. It was noted for the sumptuousness and radiance of its colour. Early Venetian masters included the Bellini and Vivarini families, who were followed by its greatest exponents, Titian and Giorgione. Tintoretto and Veronese represent the transition from Renaissance to Baroque, while Tiepolo, Canaletto, and Guardi revived Venetian painting in the 18th century.
