Domenichino

Domenico Zampieri (1581-1641), known as Domenichino, was an Italian Baroque painter of the Bolognese School of painters. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries his paintings were considered as second only to those of Raphael, but in the mid-19th century he fell from favour. He became famous as a Baroque classicist again only in the 20th century. His artworks are known for lucid and balanced compositions, sober expressions and restrained gestures of its figures.
