Bartolomeo Schedoni(sometimes Schedone)[1] (1578–1615) was an Italian early Baroque painter from Reggio Emilia.

Biography[edit]

Schedoni was born in Modena, and moved to Parma with his father. He apprenticed under Federico Zuccari in Rome after 1598, with the sponsorship of Ranuccio I Farnese, Duke of Parma. He then returned to Parma. The baroque art historian Count Carlo Cesare Malvasia claims that he trained under Annibale Carracci in Bologna. Schedoni may have died of suicide after a night of heavy gambling losses. His painting shows knowledge of Caravaggio’s work.

His masterpieces are in the Galleria Nazionale of Parma, and were the two paintings intended for the altar of the church of the Capuchin convent in Fontevivo, near Parma.
