Pesaro, Niccolo Trometto, or Niccolo Da
Pesaro, Niccolo Trometto, Or Niccolo Da an Italian painter of the 16th century, and a native of Pesaro, studied under Zuccaro, whose style he at first followed closely. He executed some works for the churches at Rome, the principal of which are the Nativity, in the Basilica; a Pieta, in S. Francesca; the Nativity and the Circumcision, in S. Maria da Aracaeli. Lanzi says his best piece is the Last Supper, in the church of the Sacrament at Pesaro. "It is a picture so well conceived and harmonized, and so rich in pictorial effect, that Lazzarini has descanted upon it in his lectures as one of the finest works in that city." It is said that Baroccio regarded this artist with esteem, and Baglioni commends him for his earlier works. He afterwards fell into a mannered, insipid style, which injured his reputation and fortune. He died at Rome in the pontificate of Paul V, aged seventy years.
