Biography[edit]

Riminaldi was born at Pisa. He was a pupil locally of the little known painter Rainero Alberghetti, then Aurelio Lomi, and finally Orazio Gentileschi. After moving to Rome, he painted in a Caravaggist style influenced or under the tutelage of Orazio Gentileschi, but when returned to Pisa, ultimately choosing a muted style. He painted the Martyrdom of St. Cecilia previously in the Palazzo Pitti, there is a copy in the church of St Catherine of Pisa. He painted a Samson slaying the Philistines (1626) and the Assumption of the Virgin (completed posthumously by his brother Girolamo) for the Cathedral of Pisa. He died of the plague in 1630.[1]

Riminaldi's Danae and Icarus is in the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut. His painting of Cupid Asleep Approached by Venus in Her Chariot is found in Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire, England.[2]
