Beverense Antonio an Italian painter, labored at Venice in the second half of the 17th century. Lanzi thinks this artist was a native of Bavaria, for which reason, and his early return to his own country, he is not known in Italy as his merits deserve; that he was a disciple of the Bolognese school, and that in the College of the Nunziata is a picture of the Marriage of the Virgin, which displays great accuracy of design, superiority of forms, and an admirable chiaro-scuro.
