Girolamo Troppa

1630 Rocchette, Sabina – after 1710 Rome

In 1656 Cavaliere Girolamo Troppa began his career as a painter in Rome, where his work was influenced by such masters as Giacinto Brandi and Pier Francesco Mola. He moved in the artistic ambience of Roman High Baroque and in 1672 assisted none other than Giovanni Battista Gaulli. In the subsequent period he also collaborated with such artistic personalities as Giovanni Battista Beinaschi, Daniel Seiter and Giuseppe Ghezzi. Troppa’s artistic activity led him over the borders of Latium to Umbria and the Marches. In view of the multiple sources of inspiration that he drew on for his art, Troppa is an elusive personality as a painter. His paintings are rare, and in the past many of his works have been listed in museum collections under a different name.
