Bernardino Capitelli

1589–1639, Siena

Bernardino Capitelli was trained by Alessandro Casolani and Rutilio Manetti. His extensive printed work comprises historically interesting depictions of festivities in his home town of Siena, reproductive prints after artworks of classical antiquity as well as etchings after his own inventions and paintings by other artists. Occupying an important place in his œuvre is a set of seventeen etchings after compositions by his tutor, Rutilio Manetti. Between 1627 and 1629 Capitelli was active in Rome, where he produced etchings after ancient sarcophagi and reliefs for Cavalier Cassiano del Pozzo.
