Giovanni Battista Pasqualini

1595–1631, Cento

Giovanni Battista Pasqualini was very likely a student of Oliviero Gatti at the Accademia del Nudo founded by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, alias Guercino, in 1616 in the latter’s native town of Cento. In the following years Pasqualini became one of the main printmakers of works by Guercino, joining the master when he moved to Rome in May 1621. By the time of his premature death in 1631 Pasqualini had made some seventy engravings after designs by Guercino.
