Misciroli, Tommaso

Misciroli, Tommaso a painter of the Bolognese school, was born at Faenza in 1636. He gained considerable reputation, and executed several works for the churches. His principal picture is the Martyrdom of St. Cecilia, an altar-piece in the church of St. Cecilia at Faenza, which is finished with great care. Lalzi says that in some of his works Misciroli equals the best Viennese painters, but accuses him of plagiarism in many instances, notably in the picture above alluded to, in which he introduced an executioner stirring up the flames, a feature copied almost entirely from Lionello' grand picture of the martyrdom of St. Domenico in the church of that name at Bologna. Misciroli died in 1699. See Lanzi's Hist. of Painting, transl. by Roscoe (Lond. 1847, 3 volumes, 8vo), 3:131; Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts (Phila. 1865, 2 volumes, 8vo), 2:569.
