English: Antonello da Messina (c. 1430 – 1479) was a Sicilian painter active during the Italian Renaissance. He is believed to have been a pupil of Colantonio in Naples. His oil painting technique suggests that he spent time in Flanders, with its interest in light and cast shadows. His influence can be seen in the works of Piero della Francesca, Giovanni Bellini and other Venetian painters.
