Orazio Gentileschi

(redirected from Orazio Lomi Gentileschi)

Gentileschi, Orazio

 

(Lomi). Christened July 9, 1563, in Pisa; died Feb. 7, 1638, in London. Italian painter. Follower of Caravaggio.

Gentileschi worked in Florence, Rome, Genoa, Paris, and London (from 1626). His works were influenced stylistically by Caravaggio’s early works. They are characterized by lyrical contemplation, flexibility of composition, strong chiaroscuro, and a refinement of color, derived from a harmonic blending of lucent tones. His works include St. Cecilia (National Gallery, Rome), The Annunciation (1621-23, Galleria Sabauda, Turin), and The Lute Player (National Gallery of Art, Washington).
