Tintoretto

Tintoretto Tintoretto (late September or early October, 1518 – May 31, 1594), real name Jacopo Comin, was an Italian painter and a notable exponent of the Renaissance school.
For his phenomenal energy in painting he was termed Il Furioso.
His work is characterized by its muscular figures, dramatic gestures, and bold use of perspective in the Mannerist style, while maintaining color and light typical of the Venetian School.
In his youth, Tintoretto was also known as Jacopo Robusti as his father had defended the gates of Padua in a way that others called robust, against the imperial troops during the War of the League of Cambrai (1509–1516).
His real name "Comin" has only recently been discovered by Miguel Falomir, the curator of the Museo del Prado, Madrid, and was made public on the occasion of the retrospective of Tintoretto at the Prado in 2007.
Comin translates to the spice cumin in the local language.
