Roselli (or Rosselli), Cosimo
Roselli (Or Rosselli), Cosimo, an Italian painter, was born of a noble family at Florence in 1439, and studied under Neri di Bicci and Fra Angeli. He decorated what is called "the Chapel of the Miracle" at Sant Ambrogio, and in 1476 aided in decorating the Sistine Chapel at Rome, where he had charge of the four great subjects — the Passage of the Red Sea, the Worship of the Golden Calf, the Lord's Supper, and Christ Preaching on the Sea of Tiberias. Returning to Florence loaded with honors, he died about 1506. The Museum of Berlin contains a Virgin with the Magdalen painted by him; that of Paris, a Virgin Gloriosa, a Christ Entombed, and two Madonnas; and at the Exposition of Manchester were shown a Christ on the Cross and the Virgin Surrounded by Saints. Roselli's principal pupil was Fra Bartolomeo.
