CARNEVALE Fra (b. ca. 1425, Urbino, d. 1484, Urbino) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter, originally Bartolomeo di Giovanni Corradini. His name, Fra Carnevale, is translated Brother Lent (after the 40-day, Christian liturgical season of solemn fasting before Easter Sunday, commemorating the day of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ). While in early adulthood, he migrated to artistically progressive Florence, on 28 November 1445 he was described as a pupil of the Carmelite friar Fra Filippo Lippi, and he refined his skills in painting while in his workshop.
