Antonio Palma was an Italian painter born around 1515. He was the nephew of Palma Vecchio and the father of Palma Giovane, two more well-known artists, and he was a follower of the painter Bonifazio de’ Pitati. Only two works signed by Antonio Palma have been found: a processional flag from 1565, and the other a Resurrection painting located in the Stuttgart Gallery. In Titian’s portrait of Palma, he is identified by a palm branch and a paint box. (RD)
