Giacomo Raibolini

1484 - Jan 3, 1557

Giacomo Raibolini, also called Giacomo Francia or Jacopo Francia, was an Italian painter and engraver of the Renaissance period.
Francia was born in Bologna as elder son of Francesco Raibolini, and like his father was also called il Francia. His father and brother Giulio Raibolini were also artists. Francia was trained by his father in painting and goldsmithing, and acted as his assistant. In 1517, the year of his father's death, he and his brother, Giulio, assumed responsibility for the family business and together executed many church altarpieces, identifiable by the initials of their Latinized names. Late in life Giacomo came under the influence of Dosso Dossi. He died in Bologna in 1567.
Giacomo's earliest known work is the Virgin in Glory with SS Peter, Mary Magdalene, Francis, Martha and Six Nuns. In this painting, as in the SS Jerome, Margaret and Francis and the Nativity, both dated and signed by both brothers, there appear, in addition to the influence of their father, echoes of the monumental style of Raphael. Some of his other paintings include:
paintings in church of San Giovanni, Parma.
two of the frescoes in the chapel of St.
