Giacinto Calandrucci

Apr 20, 1646 - Feb 22, 1707

Giacinto Calandrucci was an Italian painter of the Baroque period.
Originally from Palermo, he moved to Rome with his fellow Palermitan painter and engraver Pietro del Pò. Like many painters in Rome in his day, then entered the large and prolific studio of Carlo Maratta. He afterwards worked under Giuseppe Passeri.
In the 1680s Calandrucci completed decorative frescoes of the Four Seasons in the Palazzo Lante; mythological frescoes in the gallery of the Palazzo Muti Papazzurri; the decoration of the gallery of the Palazzo Strozzi-Besso; and a ceiling fresco, and the Sacrifice of Ceres in the papal Villa Falconieri at Frascati. He also painted idyllic pastoral scenes, among them two pictures at Burghley House, Stamford, England. He also painted in Rome two works for the main altar and the Cimini Chapel in the church of Sant'Antonio dei Portoghesi, a Virgin and Child with St Anne and Saints in frescoes and canvases in San Bonaventura, a Holy Family with St Anne and a St Anthony of Padua, both in San Paolo alla Regola, and frescoes in Santa Maria dell'Orto. In 1705 he returned to Palermo, where he began the decoration of the oratory of San Lorenzo.
