Alessandro Maganza

1556–1632, Vicenza

The painter and fresco artist, Alessandro Maganza, the most renowned member of this family of artists from Vicenza, was first trained by his father Giambattista before going on to study under Giovanni Antonio Fasolo. After the death of his tutor in 1572 Alessandro spent four years in Venice, where he was exposed to the work of such leading artists of the day as Tintoretto, Palma il Giovane and Veronese. Alessandro must have acquired an extensive knowledge of Venetian painting at some earlier point in his career, as his father was a student and imitator of Titian.
