Palmieri, Guieppe

Palmieri, Guieppe an Italian painter, was born in 1674. He studied at Florence, but it is not known under whom. Orlandi extols him as one of the first painters of his age. Lanzi thinks Orlandi too extravagant in his praise. He adds, however, that in the human figure Palmieri is a painter of spirit, and has a magical and beautiful style of color, very harmonious and pleasing when the shades do not predominate. In Palmieri's Resurrection, in the church of St. Domenico at Genoa, and in other works of his carefully painted, judges of the art find little to reprove. He died in 1740.
