Biography Francesco Cozza
Francesco Cozza was born in Calabria, but soon left for Rome, where he became a student of Domenichino in ca. 1645. At first he orientated himself towards Bolognese Classicism and naturally, his teacher. His works at times show affinities with Giovanni Lanfranco, Gian Domenico Cerrini, Francesco Romanelli and Mattia Preti, who also came from Calabria.
Landscapes were always an important subject for him and they reveal influences by Gaspard Dughet and Pier Francesco Mola. Francesco Cozza painted “Mater Lactans” for the altar of the San Secondo Church in Gubbio in 1637. Cozza also painted the “Madonna del Cucito” in the San Secondo Church in Molfetta and the Quadreiria dell’Ospedale di Santo Spirito in
