Nuvolone, Giuseppe

Nuvolone, Giuseppe called Il Panfilo, an emilenut Italian artist, the younger son of Panfilo Nuvoloele, was born at Milan in 1619. Like his brother, Carlo Francesco, he studied first under his father, and afterwards under Giulio Cesare Procaccini. Lanzi says that in his works may everywhere be traced a composition and coloring derived from the school of Procaccini. His compositions are copious, and .the oppositions of his lights and shadows are conducted with great intelligence and vigor; but his taste is often inferior to that of his brother, and his shadows are occasionally dark and somber. He wrought with great facility, and was indefatigable in the practice of his profession during a long life, painting until his eighty-fourth year. His latter works bear traces of infirmity. There are many of his paintings in the cities of Lombardy; also in Brescia and other Venetian cities, among which Lanzi mentions his fine picture of St. Domenico resuscitating a Dead Man, in the church of that saint at Cremona. This work of art is animated by the most natural expression, and adorned with beautiful architecture. He died in 1703.
