Guerra, Giovanni

Modena, 1544 - Rome, 1618

Guerra arrived in Rome in 1562, where he became a member of the Accademia di S. Luca. He established a workshop with Cesare Nebbia (c. 1536-1614) and together they secured numerous papal commissions. These included the decoration of the Salone Sisto in the Vatican Library (1585-1589) and that of the Scala Santa at Porta S. Giovanni. Guerra and Nebbia collaborated in prepSring the designs for these decorative schemes, before a large team of assistants executed them. This workshop procedure was such that only one of Guerra's sequences of paintings is known to be autograph, the frescoes at the Palazzo Cenci, Rome (1590). His surviving drawings are numerous and are now widely dispersed (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 142).
