  (Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli)

(b Morazzone, 3 July 1573; d 1625/6).

Italian painter and draughtsman. With Cerano, Giulio Cesare Procaccini and Tanzio da Varallo he was one of the principal Lombard painters of the early 17th century. Like many of his contemporaries, he was strongly affected by the piety and mysticism of the teaching of St Carlo Borromeo, yet his work is distinguished from theirs by a greater classicism, owing to his training in Rome. He is well known for his altarpieces, but his outstanding achievements are large decorative frescoes for the sacrimonti at Varallo and Varese . He was an original draughtsman, and the major collections of his drawings are in Milan (Bib. Ambrosiana) and Florence (Uffizi).
