Alfani, Domenico Di Paris

an Italian painter, was born at Perugia in 1483. He was a scholar of Perugino, whose style he excelled. His reputation has suffered from that of his son Orazio; and even in Perugia some fine works were long ascribed to the latter which are now restored to Domenico. They painted together some fine altar-pieces, especially one in the Church of the Conventuals at Perugia, mentioned by Mariotti. The same writer says he was living in 1536; but Zani says he painted as late as 1553.
