Coccapani, Sigismondo

Florence, 1583 - Florence, 1643

A student of the architect Bernardo Buontalenti (c. 1531-1608) and of Cigoli (1559-1613), together with the latter, he frescoed the dome of the Pauline Chapel in S. Maria Maggiore, Rome, c. 1610-1612. His first work to have been executed without assistance seems to have been a fresco depicting S. Antonio Taking Away Money from Two False Mendicants (1613) in the cloister of S. Marco, Florence. Thereafter he painted Michelangelo Crowned by the Arts on a ceiling in the Casa Buonarroti, for which there are records of payment between 1615 and 1617, and an Adoration of the Magi (1617) for S. Maria in Castello, Signa. Coccapani's style continued to be influenced by that of Cigoli, even late in his career; he seems also to have collected drawings by his former master. His final known work is the decoration of the Martelli Chapel (1642) in SS. Michele e Gaetano, Florence. Certain of Coccapani's architectural projects are known from drawings in the Uffizi, Florence (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 186).
