Cesare DANDINI (1596-1657) ✿

Cesare Dandini (1596-1657) was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, active mainly in his native city of Florence.
He was the older brother of the painter VincenDDandini (1609-1675). His nephew, Pietro was a pupil of Vincenzo, and Pietro's two sons, Ottaviano Dandini and the Jesuit priest Vincenzo also worked as painters in Florence. According to the biographer Baldinucci, Cesare first worked under Francesco Curradi, then Cristofano Allori, and finally Domenico Passignano. He enrolled in 1621 in the Accademia del Disegno. His style has the polish and attention to draughtsmanship and design characteristic of Florentines like Carlo Dolci.
Among his pupils were Stefano della Bella, Alessandro Rosi, Antonio Giusti, Giovanni Domenico Ferrucci, and Jacopo Giorgi.
His production included portraits in miniature on copper, salon pictures of half-length religious, secular and allegorical figures, which often appear to combine portraiture with thematic conceits, and large-scale portrayals of religious and literary themes.
