Allegory of Love and Wisdom, oil on canvas painting by Isidoro Bianchi di Campione

Isidoro Bianchi called da Campione (20 July 1581, Campione d'Italia, Lombardy – 5 December 1662) was an Italian painter of the Baroque period.

He was born in Campione d'Italia, Lombardy and was active c. 1626. He studied under Pietro Francesco Mazzuchelli. He excelled in fresco painting for the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio at Milan and in different churches at Como. The Duke of Savoy chose him to finish a grand saloon at Rivoli, which had been left unfinished at the death of Mazzuchelli, who had commenced it. Bianchi was afterwards made painter to the Court, and was knighted in 1631.
