Biography from Christie's New York, Rockefeller Center:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Mario Nuzzi, known also as Mario dei Fiori, was the pre-eminent painter of flowers working in Italy in the 17th century, and the first Italian still-life artist to reach international fame.  It is an indication of his status that he exhibited with the Virtuosi at the Pantheon in 1647, that he was elected to the Academy of St Luke in 1657, and that he was painted by Morandi in the act of painting flowers - the flowers were painted by Nuzzi - in a picture commissioned by the Chigi family.

Nuzzi's capacity to produce flower pieces of real animation and vitality earned him numerous important patrons, including many of the most prominent families of Papal Rome, among them the Chigi, Colonna, Barberini, and Orsini.
