Pagani, Vincenzio

Resource Toolbox

an Italian painter, was a native of Monte-Rubbiano, in Picenum, of whom there are notices from 1529 to 1553. Colucci, in his Memorie de Monte- Rubbiane, says he was a scholar of Raphael. He executed many works for the churches in the Roman territory, particularly in his native place, at Fallerone, and at Sarnano. One of his most beautiful works is the Assumption of the Virgin, in the collegiate church at Monte-Rubbiano, designed and executed entirely in the manner of Raphael. The Padre Civalli highly extols two of his works in the church of his order at Sarnano. In 1553 he was, employed to paint the altar-piece of the Capella degli Oddi, in the church of the Conventualists at Perugia, which is highly commended. In consequence probably of his secluded life, little is known of this artist except his works, which are of a high character. Lanzi and others doubt whether he was really a scholar of Raphael, but rather think he formed his style by contemplating his works.
