Display artist/maker:

Tommaso Minardi

Born: 1787, Italy, Faenza   Died: 1871, Rome

Painter and writer. Studied with the engraver Giuseppe Zauli (1763-1822) in Faenza before travelling to Rome in 1803 where he studied at the Accademia di San Luca and in the studio of Vincenzo Camuccini (1771-1844). He became Director of the Accademia di Belle Arti in Perugia, 1819-21, before returning to the Accademia di San Luca as Professor of Drawing, 1822-58. He rejected some of the traditional academic means of study believing that a spiritual perception of nature was more valuable and, in 1842, he co-signed Antonio Bianchini's (1803-1884) 'Del purismo nelle arti' (Purist Manifesto). He produced religious paintings and drawings and spent 13 years producing a drawn copy of Michelangelo's 'Last Judgment'
