Antonio Calza

1653 - 1714

Antonio Calza was an Italian painter of the Baroque period.
He was born in Verona to a jeweler. He was the pupil of the Bolognese painter Carlo Cignani, then moved to Rome to work under Jacques Courtois. Guglielmo Capodoro and Giovanni Battista Canziani were his pupils. Calza, who worked mostly in Bologna, is known for painting historical and battle paintings.
In 1675, he reconciled with his father, and married an 88-year-old widow. He was to marry three times, the last in 1710 to a painter of flower still lifes. He painted in Milan for General Martini, and in Vienna for Prince Eugenie, including portraits of the Prince and the Emperor. He died in Verona on April 18, 1725.
