Luigi Garzi

Luigi Garzi was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, whose work displayed heavy influences of the Bolognese painter, Guido Reni. Born in Pistoia. He started learning from a poorly known landscape painter, Salomon Boccali. But at age 15, he moved to Rome, where he was one of the main pupils of Andrea Sacchi. He is also often referred to as Ludovico Garzi. In 1680 Garzi was appointed Regent of the Congregazione dei Virtuosi al Pantheon, the papal honor society of painters. Garzi joined Rome's guild of painters, Accademia di San Luca in 1670 and became a director in 1682. Read more from Wikipedia →
