Ajello, Eutichio
Gala (Messina), 1711 - Gala, 1793

This philosopher and theologist was the abbot of the Monastery of Gala, where he carried out his early studies. He taught philosophy in Paris and was a teacher and academician at the Academy of London. He was called to Spain by Philip V's wife, Elizabeth of Farnesio, where he worked as her librarian and antiquary. After returning to Italy, he settled in Naples and published his works. Towards the

Polidoro da Caravaggio
Caravaggio, H. 1499 - Messina, H. 1543

Polidoro left his native Lombardy for Rome around 1515, where he entered the workshop of Raphael (1483-1520). In 1517-1518 he worked with Giulio Romano (c. 1499-1546) and Perino del Vaga (1501-1547) on the frescoes in the Vatican Logge; he developed a particularly close friendship with the latter artist, who probably prepared the plans for Polidoro's frescoes of the Passion (early 1520s) in the Ca

Zuccaro, Federico
Sant'Angelo in vado, Le Marche, 1540/41 - Ancona, Le Marche, 1609

He was taught by his older brother Taddeo (1529-1566) in Rome, where he helped him on a number of decorative projects in the city. After a short visit to Venice, he was in Florence in the mid-1560s, becoming a member of the Florentine Accademia del Disegno. On the death of Taddeo in 1566, he returned to Rome, where for a while he was occupied completing a number of commissions started by his broth

Candid, Pieter
Bruges, H. 1548 - Munich, 1628

A Netherlander by birth, Candid moved to Florence with his father, the bronze-caster Elias de Witte, when he was about ten years old. Biographical details are provided by Karel van Mander (1548-1606), whom he met in that city in 1574. According to van Mander, Candid assisted Vasari (1511-1574) with the decoration of the interior of the Sala Regia in the Vatican, as well as with the cupola of Flore

Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)

Veronese, Paolo (Paolo Cagliari)
Verona, 1528 - Venice, 1588

Veronese was trained in his native Verona by a local painter, Antonio Badile (1518-1560), and then by Giovanni Caroto (1488-1563/66). The influence of both these masters appears in his earliest independent works, which were executed around 1546 for local patrons and institutions. He received his first commissions outside Verona in the early 1550s, when he worked for a number of wealthy Venetian fa

Vecchi, Giovanni de
Borgo San Sepolcro, 1536/37 - Rome, 1615

De' Vecchi is almost certainly the same Giovanni dal Borgo who is known to have worked at the Villa d'Este at Tivoli in 1568. It is possible that he had been a student under Raffaello dal Colle (c. 1490-1566) in Rome; it is equally plausible that during the early 1560s he may have worked with Santi di Tito (1536-1602) at the Palazzo Belvedere. However, his earliest documented presence in that city

Vasari, Giorgio
Arezzo, 1511 - Florence, 1574

He was first taught in his native Arezzo by the little-known French glass painter and fresco painter, Guillaume de Marcillat (1475-1529 or 1537). By 1524, he had moved to Florence, where he worked for Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530), in whose studio he became acquainted with Francesco Salviati (1510-1563). During his early training in Florence, he met Michelangelo (1475-1564) and Baccio Bandinelli (1

Urbino, Carlo
Crema, Act. 1553 - Crema, Dp. 1585

Urbino's earliest works comprised frescoes -now destroyed- for the Palazzo Zurla at Crema, as well as altarpieces for S. Maria presso S. Celso in Milan (1554-1557). Also in Milan he painted the organ shutters in S. Maria della Passione and decorated the Cappella Taverna in the same church, both of these works evincing contact with the school of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). He was subsequently em

Trometta
Pesaro, H. 1540 - Rome, H. 1610

While still a young artist, Trometta moved to Rome, where he trained in the workshop of the Zuccaro brothers. He was particularly influenced by the work of Taddeo Zuccaro (1529-1566) and, along with Cesare Nebbia (c. 1536-1614), rose to become one of the workshop's principal members. He had acquired independence by 1565, when he received the commission to decorate a Chapel in S. Maria della Consol

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)
Pieve di Cadore, Belluno, Veneto (Italy), Ca. 1490 - Venice (Italy), 1576

Born to an important family from Cadore, Titan arrived in Venice around 1500-1502. There, after first working in Giovanni Bellini’s workshop, he entered that of his older brother Gentile Bellini. Around 1507, he began working with Giorgone on the decoration of the façades of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the German merchants’ warehouse in Venice. Today, only a small part of the original frescoes remai

Tintoretto, Jacopo Robusti
Venice (Italy), 1518/19 - Venice, 1594

In his biography of Tintoretto Carlo Ridolfi recounts the painter’s fleeting stay at Titian’s studio. But despite the unquestionable authority of this narrative, Tintoretto’s early works bear little resemblance to those of that artist from Pieve di Cadore. His paintings from the late 1530s—The Holy Family with Saint Jerome, the portrait of attorney Girolamo Marcello (private collection, Lucerne),

Tintoretto, Domenico
Venice (Italy), 1560 - Venice, 1635
Tintoretto, Domenico
Venice (Italy), 1560 - Venice, 1635

The son of Jacopo (Comin or Robusti) Tintoretto, Domenico trained alongside his father and assisted him in the workshop. He joined the painters' guild at the age of 17 and is documented as a member of their Venetian brotherhood from 1594 onwards. He began his career proper as his father's assistant, helping him execute the paintings for the Sala del Collegio and Sala del Senato of the Doges' Palac

Tintoretta, Marietta Robusti
Venice, 1550 - Venice, 1590

Daughter and follower of Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto, she was known in her time as "buona ritrattista" ("a good portrait painter"), both in Venice and abroad. As with her brother Marco, there is no clear starting point from which to reconstruct her life and artistic activity. There are two drawings by her hand in the Rasini Collection (Milan), and she is also considered responsible for a woman’s por

Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista

Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista
Venice (Italy), 1696 - Madrid (Italy), 1770

Tiepolo was famous throughout Europe as an unrivaled fresco painter and a splendid draftsman. His first teacher, Gregorio Lazzarini, encouraged his disciples to study 16th-century Venetian art but Tiepolo was also influenced by the tenebrist technique of Federico Bencovich and the monumental realism of his great contemporary, Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. His first clients were Venetian noblility,

Tavarone, Lazzaro
Genoa, H. 1556 - Genoa, 1641

A student of Luca Cambiaso (1527-85) from around the late 1560s, they both moved to Spain in 1583, when the master accepted an invitation to work for Philip II. Although Cambiaso died shortly thereafter, Tavarone remained in Spain and is subsequently documented as working with Fabrizio Castello (c. 1560-1617) and Nicolas Granello (c. 1550-1593). He returned to Genoa in 1591, here his most successf

Solimena, Francesco
Canale di Serino, Campania (Italy), 1657 - Barra, Naples (Italy), 1747

Solimena was a painter and architect who had begun his studies in the humanities, but his career was subsequently shaped by the profession of his father, the painter Angelo Solimena. He started working as his father’s assistant; however, the most important influence on his early training were the paintings of Luca Giordano (with whom he was friends), Pietro da Cortona, Lanfranco, and Mattia Preti,

Siciolante da Sermoneta, Girolamo
Sermoneta, H. 1521 - Rome, 1575

Siciolante became an assistant to Perino del Vaga (1501-1547) following a probable apprenticeship with Leonardo Grazia da Pistoia (active in 1520-1550). His earliest certain surviving work -an altarpiece depicting the Virgin and Child with Saints Peter, Stephen and John the Baptist (1541) for SS. Stefano e Pietro, Valvisciolo- reflects the influence of both artists. While this is a rudimentary pie
