Sassoferrato (1609-1685 ) was an Italian Baroque painter. He is often referred to only by the town of his birthplace (Sassoferrato), as was customary in his time. Sassoferrato's work was held in high regard through to the mid-19th century. His paintings were sometimes believed to be contemporary with the School of Raphael. However, by the late 19th century, reaction against sweet devotional art work was reinforced in England by the critical commentary of John Ruskin.   more from wikipedia »
