Guiseppe Maria Mitelli

Born: 1634   Died: 1718

Mitelli was born in 1634. He was an Italian engraver and painter of the Baroque period. He was best known for his prolific engravings, in a variety of subjects including scenes from grand epics as well as mundane page boards for games of chance. He also engraved genre scenes, allegories, moralistic scenes, even some bizarre cartoons. He often depicted dwarfs engaged in buffoonery or satirical depictions of aphorisms, pithy observations. Mitelli studied or worked under Francesco Albani, Guercino, and Simone Cantarini. He had a long career of over 60 years in Bologna.
