History of the Church of San Giovanni Crisostomo of Venice
Built between 1497 and 1504, San Giovanni Crisostomo is the last architectural undertaking of Mauro Codussi, which uses motifs already used for San Michele or San Zaccaria.
The “Codussian” design and the pictorial apparatus make it one of the most important churches of the Venetian Renaissance: the first chapel on the right preserves the painting with St. Jerome, St. Christopher and St. Augustine, a work of late maturity (1513) by Giovanni Bellini, in open dialogue with the altarpiece of the high altar with St. John Chrysostom and the Saints St. John the Baptist, Liberal, Mary Magdalene, Agnes and Catherine, executed between 1509 and 1511 by Sebastiano del Piombo, shortly before the artist left Venice for Rome.
