Passerotti, Tiburzio an Italian painter, son of the preceding, was born at Bologna in 1575. He was instructed by his father, whose manner he adopted, though he wrought with a less bold, free, and rapid pencil. He executed some works for the churches, which were admired for their beautiful composition, and which Lanzi says possess real merit. The principal are, The Assumption, in S. Maria Mascarella; The Virgin, with St. Francis and St. Jerome, in S. Cecilia; The Annunciation, in S. Christina; and The Martyrdom of St. Catharina, in S. Giacomo Maggiore, which last is his most celebrated performance. He was also an excellent portrait-painter. He died in the prime of life in 1612.
