Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The purpose of this article is to deepen the figure of Pietro rosa, little studied so far, contextualizing it in the artistic scene of his time, in order to have a clearer idea about his artistic career and to complete a catalogue of his paintings. Pietro was Cristoforo rosa’s son, the famous quadrature painter, and he attended titian’s workshop in Venice, in 1563. the biography and the activity of this artist are confused, because of the lack of documents, so the research had to be based on ancient sources, such as city guides, essential in order to identify his artistic production. Moreover, German sources were taken into account as they are the only documents that mention Pietro’s journey to Innsbruck, where he probably worked between 1570 and 1571 at the decoration of Ambras Castle, commissioned by the Archduke Ferdinand II. Lastly, thanks to the research, some paintings which cannot be attributed to Pietro, because of stylistic and chronological reasons, were identified.
