Together with his sister Marietta, Domenico Robusti, called Domenico Tintoretto, was trained in his father's workshop. Later the two worked independently but side-by-side on the redecoration of the Doge's Palace. In addition to a series of portraits, frequently with a landscape background, Domenico also produced a number of battle paintings - a genre of increasing importance in the monumental painting of the sixteenth century. Domenico left an important draughtsmanly oeuvre that is clearly distinguished from that of his father. As an innovation in his time, he experimented intensively with effects of light and shadow. In addition to crayon drawings, he produced monochrome oil studies (London, British Museum, and elsewhere).
