Visacci, Antonio

Visacci, Antonio (called also Il Visacci), an Italian painter, flourished at Urbino about 1600. He studied under Federigo Baroccio, and, in conjunction with other artists, was employed to paint the arches, pictures, and other decorations in honor of Giuilia de Medici, married to the duke of Urbino. He possessed a special talent for pen-drawing and chiaro-oscuro. His pictures of the Prophets were designed in grand style, and have been transferred from the cathedral to the apostolic palace. Among his other works left at his native place is a fine picture of St. Ionica, in the Church of Sant Agostino. He left some copies from Baroccio at various places, particularly at the Cathedral of Cagli. He resided and practiced a long time at Pesaro, where he instructed several pupils.
