Girolamo da Treviso
|Girolamo da Treviso|
Portrait in Vasari's Vite
Born in Treviso, to a Tommaso. The identity of Girolamo da Treviso the Elder, remains unclear.
Stylistically, Girolamo is associated with Giorgionismo and the continuation of Giorgione's style, and, while working in Bologna during the 1520s, the influence of Raphael's St. Cecilia. Besides working in Bologna, which included sculptural decoration on the portal of San Petronio and grisaille paintings inside, he also worked in Genoa, Faenza, Trent, and at the Palazzo del Te in Mantua. Giorgio Vasari, in his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, writes that Girolamo traveled to England to work as a military engineer for Henry VIII. He also worked as a painter there, A Protestant Allegory in the Royal Collection shows the Pope on the ground being pelted with large stones by various figures. Girolamo was working as an engineer for Henry when killed by a cannon shot during the siege of Boulogne-sur-Mer in 1544.
