(about 1515 - 1567)
Domenico Brusasorci The Circumcision 1547


Believed to have trained initially with his father, Brusasorci became one of the leading artists of mid-sixteenth century Verona. He painted large-scale altarpieces and frescoes for the city and its surrounding region. Brusasorci’s work reflects a wide variety of influences, from Parmigianino and Giulio Romano to Titian. He was largely responsible for introducing the Mannerist style into the local Veronese tradition. Brusasorci was considered a particularly modern artist in his own time; his colourful approach was innovative, and he remained consistently devoted to the fashionable style of Mannerism throughout his career.
