Giovanni Bellini was born in Venice, roughly around 1430.

In 1460, for the first time, Giovanni's name appears in the inscription of the altarpiece for the Gattamelata Chapel in the Basilica del Santo in Padua in collaboration with his family. Between the same year and 1465, the painter almost certainly painted the Polyptych of St. Vincent Ferrer for the church of Saints John and Paul for the school of the same name.

To the following decade dates the Pesaro Altarpiece, now in the Museo Civico of the city in the Marche region, in which Giovanni's knowledge is halfway between tradition and innovation, highlighting his new spatial experiments.

In this work there is probably a polemic with the Dominican Order, of which the holy founder is forced to read in order to educate himself properly.
