Carducci, Vincente, a Florentine painter, the brother of Bartolomeo, was born in 1568, and was instructed by his brother. He completed the work begun by the latter for Philip III of Spain, adopting, instead of The Life of Charles V, The History of Achilles as the subject; and was made king's painter during the reign of that monarch, and also of Philip IV, by whom he was employed in many important works. He painted The Incarnation, in the convent of Encarnacion at Madrid; St. Antonio and The Angel's Warning to Joseph, in the convent del Rosario, and St. John Preaching, in the refectory of the Franciscans. He wrote a book on painting, printed at Madrid in 1633. He died in 1638 See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
