Sensitivity of Giorgione

I've recently had a taste for Italian painters. I particularly like the vivid color of Giorgione and the warmth of light that he used to express a great sensitivity to the subjects. His balance of light and form is considerably ahead of his time. Delicate and passionate his pictures find a soft place in me. Deeply sensitive and reverent expression marks every character in these scenes. No doubt Giorgione's place in the canons of human history is justified, if not also underappreciated by many.
