Jacopo Robusti, called Tintoretto Portrait
Jacopo Tintoretto was born in Venice around 1518 as Jacopo Comin, the eldest of Giovanni Comin's 21 children. The name Tintoretto was derived from the name of his father's profession, tintore, or dyer. Tintoretto began dabbling in painting from an early age, often using his father's dyes to doodle on the walls of the house and his father's workshop. Giovanni, recognizing his son's calling, sought to get him an apprenticeship with an artist. The identity of Tintoretto’s first mentor is unknown, but his second teacher was Titian Vecelli.
