Antonello da Messina (b Messina, c. 1430; d Messina, between 14 and 25 Feb 1479) was Italian painter of the Southern Italian school. He was the greatest Sicilian artist of the 15th century and the only one to achieve international renown. Antonello was one of the first of the Italian artists to learn from Netherlandish art.
