Sisto Badalocchio Rosa

Sisto Badalocchio Rosa (28 June 1585 – c. 1647) was an Italian painter and engraver of the Bolognese School. Born in Parma, he started his career working under Agostino Carracci in Bologna, then Annibale Carracci, in Rome. His best known work as an engraver was the Raphael’s Bible series, which he created together with his fellow student, Giovanni Lanfranco. The images represent a series of frescoes by Raphael’s workshop in the Vatican loggia. As a painter, his most important work are the frescoes in the church of San Giovanni Evangelista, Reggio Emilia, which are based on Correggio’s earlier works.
