Gregorio De Ferrari
17th-century Genoese
(Porto Maurizio, 1647 - 1726, Genoa)

Extravagant and lyrical, Gregorio de Ferrari’s style was the principal alternative to Domencio Piola’s handsome manufacture in late-century Genoa. Based upon the example of Valerio Castello, and informed by the long study of Correggio, this style is characterized by concatenated form, iridescent color, and ecstatic sentiment. The full splendor of this style can be appreciated only in his ceiling decoration of palaces, villas and, with a mystical force, some churches in Genoa. Although Gregorio’s style is little known in this country, it is one of the most beautiful of the Baroque and one of the clearest predictions of 18th-century painting.
