Historical Artist - Giuseppe Cades (1750 - 1799)

Guiseppe Cades initially studied at Rome’s Accademia di San Luca. Not long after leaving in 1766 over a dispute with his master, Cades began receiving commissions for paintings done in his late Baroque style, influenced by Carlo Maratta. In the mid-1770’s, he made the acquaintance of Johann Heinrich Fuseli and was inspired by Mannerism, Renaissance, and ancient art. Cades painted subjects from religious history and Greek, Roman, and Italian Renaissance literature. He later traveled throughout Rome decorating the Roman palazzi and villas and creating paintings for churches and independent patrons. Cades joined the Academia di San Luca in the 1780’s. He was born in Rome. He studied under Mancini and Domenico Corvi, gaining a prize in 1765 with his picture of Tobias recovering his Sight. He visited Florence in 1766, and two years later executed an altar-piece for San Benedetto in Turin and in 1771 another for the Santi Apostoli. He also decorated the Palazzo Chigi with frescoes, landscapes, and scenes from Tasso. He has left two etchings, Christ blessing Little Children and The Death of Leonardo da Vinci. He died in Rome.
