Orsi, Benedetto

Orsi, Benedetto an Italian painter, was a native of Pescia, and flourished about 1660. Lanzi says he was an eminent pupil of Baldassare Franceschini, called Il Volterrano. There is a fine picture of St. John attributed to him in the church of St. Stefano, at Pescia. He also painted the Seven Works of Mercy for La Campagnia le Nobili. There still exists a large circular picture in the church of St. Maria del Letto, at Pistoia, which was enumerated by good judges among the finest works of Volterrano, till an authentic document proved the real painter to be Benedetto Orsi.
