Procaccini, Camillo an Italian painter who contributed to sacred art, was born in 1546. He received his first instruction in the school of his father, and afterwards visited Rome, where some biographers say that he studied the works of Michael Angelo and Raphael. Procaccini wrought uninterruptedly, and produced paintings at such a rate that his works, though they charm the eye by the simplicity and spirit which characterize them, are greatly deficient in the higher power of impressing the mind and moving the affections. His St. Roch Administering to the Sick of the Plague, which is at Dresden, is one of his best works. He died in 1626.
