Panetti, Domenico

Panetti, Domenico an Italian painter, was born in 1460 at Ferrara. It is not known under whom he studied; but, according to Baruffaldi, he painted in the dry, formal style of the time, till his pupil, Benvenuto da Garofalo, returned from Rome after acquiring the new style under Raphael. The instructor now became the pupil of his former disciple, and, although somewhat advanced in years, Panetti so entirely changed his manner that he became one of the ablest artists of his time. He executed many works for the churches of Ferrara which Lanzi says are worthy of competition with the best masters of the 14th century. Among his best works are the Descent from the Cross, in the church of S. Niccola; the Visitation of the Virgin to St. Elisabeth, in S. Francesco; and a picture of St. Andrea at the Agostiniani. There is one of his pictures in the Dresden gallery, and Kugler mentions as one of his a beautiful picture of The Entombment in the museum at Berlin. He usually inscribed his name in full upon his pictures, which Lanzi says bear evidence of change in pictoric character without an example. He died in 10530,
