Campagnola, Domenico

Domenico Campagnola (dōmĕ´nēkō kämpänyô´lä), 1500–c.1564, painter and engraver. Although Campagnola worked exclusively in Italy, there are documents indicating that he was of German origin. He was a pupil and the adopted son of Giulio Campagnola, and he may have assisted Titian in the decorating of the Scuola del Santo. He painted chiefly in the churches of Padua. His best-known works are three frescoes in the Scuola del Carmine, Padua; Four Prophets (Academy, Venice); and Holy Family (Pitti Palace, Florence). His composition and warmth of color indicate his debt to Titian. Campagnola is celebrated also for his engravings, woodcuts, and masterly pen-and-ink drawings, which resemble Titian's closely in their clear linear quality and deep shading. Examples are in the Uffizi and in the British Museum.
