Bartolomeo Passarotti

1529–1592, Bologna

The painter, draughtsman and etcher Bartolomeo Passarotti was unquestionably one of the most influential and pioneering artistic personalities in Bologna during the second half of the cinquecento. Passarotti was a creative master who distinguished himself in various types of painting, such as portraiture, genre scenes and still life. The founder of a flourishing studio (Agostino Carracci was among his pupils), he made a major contribution to the development of Late Mannerist and Early Baroque painting in Bologna.
