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 is 1570. Principally a frescoist, he executed many religious subjects in churches throughout Rome, such as the Adoration of the Shepherds (1574-1575) in S. Eligio degli Orefici. Also during the 1570s, he worked for Alessandro Farnese, decorating the oratory of the Gonfalone, as well as the Villa Farnese at Caprarola. De' Vecchi produced a number of important frescoes at Il Gesù, Rome (begun 1583), but these were overpainted during the seventeenth century. At various points during his career he returned to work at Borgo San Sepolcro, although little of that output is extant (Turner, N.: From Michelangelo to Annibale Carracci. A century of Italian drawings from the Prado, Art Services International-Museo Nacional del Prado, 2008, p. 124).
