Antonio Catalani (also called il Romano) (c. 1596 – 1666 ) was an Italian painter of the late-Renaissance and early-Baroque periods.[1]

He was born in Bologna. He was a pupil of Francesco Albani. He painted several pictures for the churches at Bologna, although he was more employed on cabinet pictures for the private collections. He painted the patron Saints of the city in four niches for the church of La Madonna del Grado in Bologna, and a St. Peter healing the Lame at the Gate of the Temple for the Gesu.
