Giuseppe Cesari (1568-1640 ) was an Italian Mannerist painter. Cesari's father had been a native of Arpino, but Giuseppe himself was born in Rome. Here, he was apprenticed to Niccolo Pomarancio. Cesari is stigmatized by Lanzi, as not less the corrupter of taste in painting than Marino was in poetry. (Lanzi disdained the style of post-Michelangelo Mannerism as a time of decline).   more from wikipedia »
