Biography from South Coast Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Carlo Dolci's artistic training began at age nine in Jacopo Vignali's studio, where he learned to combine Vignali's emotive approach with the elegant design and bright local color of the Florentine style.  Dolci probably also studied Netherlandish painting.

Intensely religious, Dolci stated his "firm intention to paint only works that would inspire the fruits of Christian piety in those who saw them."  He specialized in devotional works, although he also earned his international reputation through the portraits and still lifes he intended for his sophisticated patrons. 

Dolci captured detail in lavish textiles, jewelry, and the face and hands.  His evangelist portraits display his typical polished surface finish, which was probably influenced by Agnolo Bronzino, as well as a Caravaggesque chiaroscuro and Correggio's softness.

Dolci had a large studio and his daughter was also a painter.
