Orioli, Bartolomeo

Resource Toolbox

an Italian painter who devoted himself largely to the cultivation of sacred art, flourished at Trevigi about 1616. He executed numerous works for the churches in his native city, which are commended by Federici. Orioli was also a good portrait painter, and frequently introduced portraits into his pictures, instead of ideal forms. There is a painting of this class in the church of S. Croce, representing a numerous procession of the people of Trevigi. Laizi says he painted more pictures for public exhibitions at Trevigi than any other artist, and that he belonged to that "numerous tribe of painters who in Italy were ambitious of uniting in themselves the power of poetry and painting; but who, not having received sufficient polish, either in precept or in art, gave vent to their inspirations in their native place by covering the columns with sonnets, and the churches with pictures, but without exciting the envy of the adjacent districts."
