Matilde Amaturo

(b Mantua, Sept 23, 1690; d Mantua, Aug 18, 1769).

Italian painter. He was the son of the goldsmith Giovanni Bazzani and trained in the studio of Giovanni Canti (1653–1715). Giuseppe was a refined and cultivated artist (Tellini Perina, 1988) and as a young man profited from the rich collections of art in Mantua, studying the works of Andrea Mantegna, Giulio Romano, 16th-century Venetian painters, especially Paolo Veronese, and Flemish artists, above all Rubens. His earliest works, for example the Assumption (Milan, priv. col., see Caroli, pl. 20), reveal an affinity with contemporary Venetian painters such as Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, Federico Bencovich and Andrea Celesti, but Bazzani rapidly absorbed the influence of Antonio Balestra, Domenico Fetti and most of all Rubens and Veronese. The inspiration of the last two artists is apparent in a number of works that may be dated in the 1720s and early 1730s. These include the Miracles of Pius V, the Conversion of a Heretic...

Elisa Acanfora

(b Florence, Aug 10, 1583; d Florence, March 3, 1643).

Italian painter, draughtsman and architect. He was the son of Maria Margherita Chiosi, a Florentine woman, and Regolo Coccapani, a nobleman of Carpi who worked as a goldsmith on the Ponte Vecchio, Florence. Sigismondo studied under the architect Bernardo Buontalenti and studied painting with Lodovico Cigoli, with whom he collaborated on the fresco decoration (c.1610–12) in the dome of the Pauline Chapel in S Maria Maggiore in Rome. His first known independent work is the frescoed lunette in the cloister of the convent of S Marco, Florence, depicting St Antonino Taking Money away from Two False Mendicants (1613). Between 1615 and 1617 he received payments for the painting of Michelangelo Crowned by the Arts on the ceiling of the Galleria in the Casa Buonarroti; in the same years he painted the Adoration of the Magi, initialled and dated 1617 (Signa, S Maria in Castello).

French, 17th century, male.

Born 11 March 1643, in Aix-en-Provence; died 25 March 1672, in Aix-en-Provence.

Painter, engraver.

Provencal School.

Laurent Fauchier, the son of a goldsmith, excelled in portraiture. This is all the more surprising because he was self-taught. He studied and copied the portraits of Finsonius, as well as drawing after antiquity and the prints of Raphael and the Carracci School. The Cardinal, Duke of Vendôme and Governor of Provence, brought him to Paris and introduced him to Mignard, who put him under his protection and had him work on many of his paintings. Fauchier completely understood the exaggerations and faults of his teachers, in particular the mannerism of Mignard. Pierre Puget had him give lessons to his son François. In spite of the offers made to him, Fauchier refused to appear at court. He died at the age of 29, the victim of overwork, whilst painting Madame de Forbin, known under the name of the ...

Enrica Banti

[Giovan Domenico; Giandomenico]

(b Florence, June 15, 1692; d Aug 18, 1768).

Italian painter. He was the son of the goldsmith Antonio di Giovanni da Imola and Margherita di Domenico Gori. His mother’s family, which included her brother, the antiquarian Antonio Francesco Gori, was extremely influential in Florence and proved very important for Ferretti. In the first years of his life he lived in Imola, where he was sent to study (1708) with the local painter Francesco Chiusuri. After the family moved to Florence, Ferretti was taught there by Tommaso Redi and Sebastiano Galeotti. Later he spent five years in Bologna, an important centre for the practice and teaching of academic painting, where, in the workshop of Felice Torelli, his work acquired its characteristic style.

On returning to Florence in 1715, Ferretti frescoed the ceiling of S Chiara, the scenes of which are practically illegible. Two years later he became a member of the Accademia del Disegno. Between 1718 and ...

[il Sarzana]

(b Sarzana, Aug 12, 1589; d Genoa, Oct 19, 1669).

Italian painter. He was the son of Giovanni Fiasella, a silversmith. At the age of 11 he studied briefly with Aurelio Lomi (1556–1622), who was in Genoa from 1597 to 1604, and then with Giovanni Battista Paggi. Around 1607 he left for Rome, where he copied paintings by Raphael and frequented the Accademia del Nudo. His painting of a Nativity (untraced) was admired by Guido Reni when it was on view for a celebration in S Maria della Scala, Rome (Soprani). Consequently Domenico Passignano and Giuseppe Cesari Arpino (1568–1640) asked him to work with them, and the Marchese Vincenzo Giustiniani commissioned paintings from him.

After about ten years in Rome, Fiasella returned to Sarzana, perhaps in 1616 when he painted an altarpiece, Virgin and Child with St Lazzaro (Sarzana, S Lazzaro). The heavy figures, precise modelling and strong lighting in this, his earliest dated painting, show that he had both learnt the classical language of Roman art and absorbed the naturalism and ...
