Maganza, Alessandro

Vicenza, 1556 - Vicenza, después de 1630

Alessandro Maganza, was the best-known member of a family of painters from Vicenza, in whose workshop he trained before moving to that of Giovanni Antonio Fasolo (1530-1572). Thereafter he was in Venice (c. 1572-1576), and his subsequent work shows the various influences of the leading artists of that city: Tintoretto (1519-1594), Veronese (1528-1588), and Palma Il Giovane (c. 1548-1628) as well as Jacopo Bassano (c. 1510-92). His earliest documented painting, a Virgin and Child with four Evangelists (1580; Vicenza, Monte Berico) is indebted to Palma in figural composition, while the latter Baptism of Christ (1591) for the same monastery is closer to Veronese. During the course of the first decade of the seventeenth century, Maganza executed a sequence of Passion scenes in the Cappella del Sacramento in Vicenza Cathedral, with a more robust style suggestive of Tintoretto or Bassano. His secular projects include various frescoes and sofitto work at the Villa Rotonda (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 164).
