Nanni, Girolamo

Resource Toolbox

a Roman painter of religious subjects, called "II Poco e Buono," flourished about 1643. His talents were ordinary, and he deserves little notice, except for his studious disposition and slowness of execution. He was employed by Sixtus V in several considerable works, and whenever requested by the director to hasten operations, he always answered "poco e buono" (little and good), which expression gained him his surname. There are a number of his pictures at Rome, among which are the Annunciation in the church of the Madonna dell' Anima, and two subjects from the life of St. Bonaventura in St. Bartolomeo dell' Isola.
