Catena, Vincenzo di Biagio, c.1470-1531, Venetian painter. His early work, reflecting the influence of Giovanni Bellini, includes the two paintings of Madonna and Child with Saints in the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore, and the Academy, Venice. In his later period Catena followed closely the style of Giorgione. The best works of this period are The Doge Loredan Kneeling before the Madonna (Correr Mus., Venice); The Martyrdom of St. Christina (Church of Santa Maria Mater Domini, Venice); and Christ Giving the Keys to St. Peter (Gardner Mus., Boston).
