Fra Carnevale (active in Florence, 1445; died in
Urbino, 1484), Bartolomeo Corradini, was an Italian painter. On 28
November 1445 he was described as a pupil of Fra Filippo Lippi. He
was active in his home town of Urbino by 1451, when he received
payments on behalf of the syndics of S Domenico for the doorway and
glazed terracotta lunette commissioned from Maso di Bartolommeo and
Luca della Robbia in Florence. He was absolved from painting an
altarpiece in 1456. From 1461 he was parish priest at San Cassiano
di Cavallino, near Urbino, but he appears to have been active in
Urbino, where in 1467 he received payments for an altarpiece of the
Birth of the Virgin for S Maria della Bella. This was his most famous
work, which Vasari said influenced Bramante. The picture was confiscated
by Cardinal Antonio Barberini in 1631 and has been identified with two
panels from his collection (New York, Met., and Boston, MA, Mus. F.A.).
Carnevale is listed in a later memoria among the engineers and architects
of Federigo II da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino.
