Ludovico Lana

1597 Codigoro near Ferrara – 1646 Modena

Ludovico Lana was initially trained by Ippolito Scarsello and later by Guido Reni in Bologna, where he also came into contact with the genius loci Guercino, from whom he drew stylistic inspiration. The latter also exerted considerable influence on Lana’s modest printed oeuvre. From 1619 the artist lived in Modena, where he was court painter to Duke Francesco I d’Este.
