Biography

Bartolomeo Carducho (* about 1560 in Florence; † November 14, 1608 in Madrid; also Carducci) was an Italian painter.

Carducho studied in Rome under F. Zucchero and followed him to Spain, where he was highly regarded under Philip III. He died in 1608. Carducho's main works are: the stigmatization of St. Francis in the monastery of St. Jerome, the decrease from the Cross to San Felipe el Real in Madrid, the Adoration of the Magi in the Alcázar of Segovia.

He took his brother Vicente Carducho with him to Spain and taught him painting.
