Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Domenico Zampieri


Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 17th Century artist, Domenico Zampieri [Bolognese, 1581-1641] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Domenichino

Domenichino (Properly Domenico Zampieri), was an Italian painter, born in Bologna, 21 October, 1581; died in Naples, 16 April, 1641. He began his art studies in the school of Calvaert, but being ill-treated there, his father, a poor shoemaker, placed him in the Carracci Academy, where Guido Reni and Albani were also students. Domenichino was a slow, thoughtful, plodding youth whom his companions called the “Ox,” a nickname also borne by his master Ludovico. He took the prize for drawing in the Carracci Academy gaining thereby both fame and hatred. Stimulated by success, he studied unremittingly, particularly the expression of the human face, so that Bellori says “he could delineate the soul.”
