Cavaliere d’Arpino

Giuseppe Cesari, known as the Cavaliere d’Arpino, was an Italian Mannerist painter of the late 16th century. The energy, emotional truthfulness, and clear color of his paintings foreshadow the Baroque style of the 17th century. He was much patronized in Rome by both Clement and Sixtus V. Also, he was the studio chief, in which Caravaggio trained upon the younger painter’s arrival in Rome.
