Biography

Vincenzo Campi (* 1530, 1535 or 1536 in Cremona; † 3. October 1591 ibid.) was an Italian painter, architect, engraver, draughtsman and cosmographer.

Vincenzo Campi was a pupil of his brother Giulio and son of Galeazzo Campi. He was an indefatigable companion to his brothers, whom he almost resembled in colouring, but who he aspired to in drawing. To Cremona one sees from his hand four representations of the removal from the cross. In small figures Vincenzo was better than in large ones; also his portraits and fruits were appreciated. Many of his cabinet pieces were painted on slate.
