Nebbia, Galeotto

Nebbia, Galeotto an old Italian painter much devoted to sacred subjects, was a native of Castellaccio, near Alessandria, and flourished at Genoa about 1480. In the church of S. Brigida in that city are two altarpieces by him which are esteemed for their antiquity and originality. The first represents the Archasgels, and the second St. Pantaleone and other Martyrs. Lanzi says they are remarkably well executed for the time: the figures represented on a gold ground, the draperies extremely rich, with stiff and regular foldings, not borrowed from any other school. The grado, or step, is ornamented with minute histories — somewhat crude, but displaying much diligence and care in finishing.
