Passeri, Giuseppe

Passeri, Giuseppe a nephew of the preceding, was born at Rome in 1654. According to Pascoli, he was a scholar of Carlo Maratti, and one of the most successful followers of his style. He painted many works for the churches at Rome, and at different places in the Roman territory. In the church of the Vatican he painted a pendant to the Baptism of Maratti, representing St. Peter baptizing the Centurion. This works after being copied in mosaic, was sent to the church of the Coventuals at Urbino. It was executed under the direction of Maratti himself, and is admirably colored; but in his other works at Rome, such as the Conception, in the church of St. Tommaso in Parione, the coloring is comparatively feeble. At Pesara is one of his most eiteemed works, representing St. Jerome meditating on the Last Judgment. He painted for the collections, and was also an excellent portrait painter. Passeri lived in general esteem, and his house was much frequented by persons of the first rank for taste and literature. He died at Rome in 1714.
