Brief Biography-Domenico Fetti was born in Rome where Ludovico Cigoli was his master. However, Giulio Romano's works mostly influenced him when he went to Mantua with Cardinal Ferdinando Gonzaga, later the Duke of Mantua. The Duke patronized him and subsequently appointed him as Court Painter. Frescoes he painted in Mantua were not up to his oil paintings. In 1621, Fetti went to Venice and lived there for the remainder of his short life. Venetian art influenced him much, and with his admiration for Elsheimer and Rubens, he produced small genre scenes. His themes were Mythological and Biblical. He died in Venice in 1623.
