Bagnacavallo, Ravenna, 1484 - Bologna, 1542

He was one of the leading exponents of the classicizing tendency in Bolognese painting that evolved in the wake of Raphael's influence in the city during the first half of the sixteenth century. Bagnacavallo was in Bologna by the age of nineteen, where he seems to have entered the workshop of Francesco Francia (c. 1450-1517); the older artist's style is evident in his early Holy Family (Palazzo Ducale, Urbino). He was well established by the second decade of the sixteenth century, and yet few works from that period can be accounted for, his earliest secure painting being the Crucifixion (dated 1522) for the Boncompagni Chapel in S. Pietro, Bologna. He also spent time in Rome where, in collaboration with Biagio Pupini (active between 1511 and 1551), he executed frescoes (now destroyed) in S. Pietro in Vincoli. Vasari (1511-1574) relates that in Rome, Bagnacavallo was influenced by Raphael (1483-1520), and while the precise nature of their relationship is difficult to determine, the latter certainly had an impact on his mature style in works such as the Virgin and Child in Glory with Saints (S. Donnini, Bologna) (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, pp. 58).
