 Pietro Paolo Baldini



Pietro Paolo Baldini

(b Rome, 1605; d Rome, 1650). Italian painter and sculptor. In documents he is referred to as del Modello (deriving from the name of the street in Rome in which he was living, the Vicolo dei Modelli). Baldini is presumed to be the same person as the sculptor Paolo Naldini, whose biography by Pascoli presents him as beginning his career with painting, as a pupil in Rome of Andrea Sacchi, before turning to sculpture later at the suggestion of his friend Carlo Maratti. Pascoli gave a list of sculptures by Naldini. The existing data on the painter and the sculptor coincide in such a way as to convince scholars of the artistís activity in both fields, which was not unusual in the 17th century.
