Cairo, Ferdinando

an Italian historical painter of the Piedmontese school, was born at Casal Monferrato in 1666 (others say 1656 or 1671), and studied with his father, an obscure artist, and afterwards with Franceschini, at Bologna. He executed the frescos on the ceiling of the Church of San Antonio at Brescia. He died at Brescia in 1730. See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
