Padova, Girolamo da,

Resource Toolbox

called also Girolamo dal Santo, an Italian painter, was born at Padua in 1480, and died about 1550. He was celebrated in his day for his small pictures of historical subjects, which he decorated with bas-relief sarcophagi and other antique ornaments, with inscriptions copied for the most part from the Paduan marbles. On the death of Bernardo Parentino, in the year 1531, Padova was commissioned to continue the admirable works executed by that master in a cloister in the monastery of Santa Giustina. In these Lanzi says Padova showed himself greatly inferior to Parentino in design and expression; but Lanzi commends Padova's elegant accessories, designed from the antique.
