Giorgione del Castelfranco (c. 1475-1510) was a Italian Renaissance painter, active in Venice, probably trained by Giovanni Bellini.
His work influenced Titian and other Venetian painters. His subjects are imbued with a sense of mystery and treated with a soft technique reminiscent of Leonardo da Vinci's later works, as in Tempest in 1504 (Accademia, Venice).
