Vicentino, Andrea

Vicentino, Andrea an Italian painter, was born at Venice in 1539. He was a scholar of the elder Parma, and followed his style. He was a great plagiarist, but made his selections with good taste and judgment. He was one of the most popular artists of his day, and found abundant employment in painting for the churches and public edifices of Venice and other cities of that republic, and even beyond its bounds. His best pictures are preserved in the collections, among which is his Solomon Anointed King of Israel, in the Royal Gallery at Florence, a picture worthy of great commendation. He died in 1614.
