Carlo Dolci


Florentine School. Born 1616; died 1686. He was a pupil of Jacopo Vignali and reached his highest development by about 1640. His strongest paintings are in portraiture, a field in which his proficiency remained at a high level throughout his career. But by preference he painted religious subjects of ecstatic, intimate feeling, the figures modeled in a soft, Correggesque chiaroscuro.
