(c.1433/6–1504), Dalmatian painter, born in Sebenico (then a Venetian possession, now Croatian Šibenik); his surname reflects his Slavic origins. Schiavone worked with Squarcione in Padua from 1456 to 1461, during which time he painted the polyptych Virgin and Child with Saints (National Gallery, London). He then returned to Dalmatia, where he worked in Zara (now Croatian Zadar) for two years before settling in Sebenico; his paintings for Sebenico Cathedral have been destroyed, but the Virgin and Child Enthroned in the Church of St Louro in Sebenico is probably a late work by Schiavone.
