From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bartolomeo Biscaino (1632–1657) was an Italian painter of the Baroque period, active in his native Genoa. He was the son, and first a pupil of Giovanni Andrea Biscaino. He afterwards became a pupil of Valerio Castelli. His career was cut short by the plague, which visited Genoa, to which his father and himself fell victims. The Dresden gallery once held three paintings, representing Woman taken in adultery, Adoration by Magi, and Circumcision of Christ.

He etched several plates, in a style, recalling Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, including:

  • Moses in bulrushes
  • Susannah and the Elders
  • Nativity with Angels
  • The Circumcision
  • The Magi’s offering
  • Herodias with head of St. John
  • Virgin and infant with Angels
  • Virgin suckling infant, with St. Joseph
  • Virgin suckling infant with St. Joseph. St. John with his lamb
