Ottini, Pasquale

Ottini, Pasquale (sometimes called Pasqualotte), an Italian painter of note, was born at Verona in 1570. He studied with Felice Riccio, called Brusasorci, whose manner he imitated so happily that he was employed to finish some works left incomplete by his master at his death. Lanzi says "he was a good artist in regard to forms, and of no common expression, particularly in the works he conducted after having seen Raphael's. Of this we have a striking example in his Murder of the Innocents, at S. Stefano, and his picture of St. Nicolo, with other saints, at S. Giorgio, in the best style of Venetian coloring. In other instances his coloring is somewhat languid-a defect most probably from time and unfavorable situation." He was in high repute in his native city, and the learned Alessandro Carli, in his history of Verona, says that he approached nearer to Paul Veronese than any other artist of that city. He died of the great plague in 1630. He is said to have executed some beautiful etchings. Bartsch has given a description of only one known print by him, which he commends in the highest terms. It represents the burial of Christ, and is signed Pasq. Ottii, Vers. ino.
