Historical Artist - Giuseppe Cesari (1568 - 1640)

Also known as Cavaliere d'Arpino, Giuseppe Cesari worked mainly in Rome where he gained a highly respected position as a painter. He was granted numerous important commissions, including the mosaics for St. Peter's dome. In addition to frescoes, he also produced a number of religious and mythological cabinet paintings. He was a man of touchy and irascible character, and rose from penury to the height of opulence. His brother Bernardino Cesari assisted in many of his works. Cesari became a member of the Accademia di San Luca in 1585. In 1607, he was briefly jailed by the new papal administration. He died in 1640, at the age of seventy-two, or perhaps of eighty, at Rome.
