A new, indispensable contribution to the studies on this famous painter, with complete illustrations including fine reproductions made especially for this volume.
[Serodine / Complete works] In the variegated panorama of Rome in the early 1600s the personality of the Ticinese painter Giovanni Serodine (1600-1630) stands out. His human and artistic story covers a very short time period, as he died at the young age of thirty. This book examines the painter’s activity starting with his early works, from the decoration of the apsidal basin of the church of the Conception at Spoleto, to the canvases in which his technique becomes increasingly confident and forceful.
Following a detailed biography of the artist, the volume analyzes his training and points of contact with fellow artists. The complete catalogue of works is subdivided in profiles, followed by an appendix on documentation and a thorough bibliography.
