Taddeo Zuccari

1529-1566 Italy/Mannerism

 

Brief Biography-Taddeo Zuccari, born in Sant’Angelo in Vado, in the Duchy of Urbino, was the elder brother of Federico Zuccari. He led an impoverished life in Rome, sleeping rough and grinding paint colours for shops while in his spare time studying the works of Raphael. However, he received instruction from pupils of Correggio and Parmigiano, gaining considerable recognition in Rome. He worked in Urbino and Verona, painting many notable frescoes and oil paintings that Giorgio Vasari acknowledged. After working at the Vatican for Pope Julius III and Paul VI in the Sala Regia, Cardinal Farnese engaged him in the Caprarola palace painting fresco cycles. In 1566, his brother Federico resumed his unfinished work at Caprarola and the Vatican on his early death. Taddeo lies in the Pantheon, near the grave of Raphael.
