Grimaldi, Giovanni Francesco

Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi (jōvän´nē fränchās´kō grēmäl´dē), 1606–80, Italian painter and architect, called Il Bolognese. He was a pupil of the Carracci and of Francesco Albani. With the exception of two years in France (1649–51), where he decorated the Mazarin Palace (now the Bibliothèque nationale) and other buildings for Cardinal Mazarin, most of his life was spent in Rome. He was employed as architect and painter by several popes. His paintings, chiefly landscapes in the manner of the Carracci, are found in the Borghese and Colonna galleries and the Quirinal, Rome; the Louvre; and in Vienna.
