Biography

Daniele Crespi (* 1597 in Busto Arsizio, Varese; † 19. July 1630 in Milan) was an Italian painter.

Crespi was the son and pupil of Giovanni Battista Crespi. His colours are similar to those of Carracci. The colouring is very strong, both in oil and on lime. Especially appealing is the soulful expression on the faces of his saints. In the Passion Church of Milan, where his great Deposition from the Cross is also located, he left behind many portraits executed in the best Titian taste. His last paintings from the life of Saint Bruno in the Charterhouse of Milan are considered his best.

Daniele Crespi died on 19 July 1630 as a result of a plague. In his birthplace, Busto Arsizio in Italy, the Grammar School for Human Science and Language, the Istituto di Istruzione Secondaria "Daniele Crespi" is named after him.
