Extract

(b Crevalcore, Jan 2, 1662; d Bologna, Nov 20, 1747).

Italian painter and engraver. He was a pupil of Giuseppe Maria Crespi and was active in Bologna (where he painted a landscape fresco for the former orphanage of S Bartolomeo) and in Parma, Modena and Ferrara. Buscaroli attributed to him the Landscape with Ploughmen and the Landscape with Travellers (both Bologna, Leoni priv. col.; for illustrations, see Buscaroli). Mattioli’s engravings, based on his own designs or those by other artists, among them Guido Reni, include landscapes, allegorical scenes, portraits, book illustrations and festival decorations. Most famous are his illustrations for the republication of Giulio Cesare Croce’s Bertoldo e Bertoldino (Bologna, 1736) after an original set of etchings by Crespi. Other reproductive prints by Mattioli include the Woman of Samaria after Annibale Carracci, St Jerome and the Agave after Crespi (for illustrations, see Merriman), the Immaculate Conception after Donato Creti and numerous landscapes after Guercino.
