Giovanni Girolamo Bonesi
He was born in Bologna. He was the pupil of the painter Giovanni Maria Viani, but followed the style of Carlo Cignani. He painted a St Francis of Sales kneeling before the Virgin for the church of San Marino; a St Thomas of Villanova giving Alms to the Poor for the church of San Biagio; and a Virgin and Infant Christ, with Mary Magdalene and St Hugo for the Certosa di Bologna.
