Paolini, Pio Fabio
Paolini, Pio Fabio an Italian painter, was born at Udine. He early went to Rome to study under Pietro da Cortona, and there acquired considerable reputation for some historical works, especially for his fine fresco of San Carlo, which adorns the Corso. In 1678 he was elected a member of the Academy of St. Luke. He afterwards returned to his native city, where he executed several altar-pieces and other works for the churches, which Lanzi says entitled him to a high rank among the followers of Cortona. He also painted much for the collections.
