Giovanni Bellini (c. 1430 – 26 November 1516) wis an Italian Renaissance penter, probably the best kent o the Bellini faimily o Venetian penters. His faither wis Jacopo Bellini, his brither wis Gentile Bellini (wha, during his lifetime, wis mair heichly regairdit nor Giovanni, awtho the reverse is true the day), an his brither-in-law wis Andrea Mantegna. He is conseedert tae hae revolutionised Venetian pentin, muivin it taewart a mair sensuous an colouristic style. Throu the uise o clear, slow-dryin ile pents, Giovanni creatit deep, rich tints an detailed shadins. His sumptuous colourin an fluent, atmospheric landscapes haed a great effect on the Venetian pentin schuil, especially on his pupils Giorgione an Titian.
