Girolamo di Giovanni (Camerino, documentato dal 1450 – +Piorico 1503)

Born around 1425-1430, the artist is strongly influenced by the art of Giovanni Angelo d’Antonio, Monte San Martinoone of the most important painters of Camerino. In 1450 he is documented as a member of Padua’s guild of painters. The Paduan antiquarian lesson determined by Donatello’s style can already be individuated in the frescos of Pieve Torina (1457). Girolamo makes his most important work, the Stories of Passion, for the country chapel of the canon and later priest of San Venantium between 1456 and 1462. He makes the standard of Tedico in 1463 and the polyptych of Monte San Martino ten years later, the frescos for the Marian sanctuary of Gagliole between 1483 and 1487 and the works made in Pioraco where he lives until his death, in 1503.
