Lanfranco, Giovanni (1582–1647) Italian painter, one of the pioneers of the high baroque style in Rome. Born in Parma and trained under Agostino Carracci in Bologna, in 1602 he moved to Rome to assist Annibale Carracci on the decorations in the Farnese Palace. After 1612, Lanfranco executed a series of important frescos in Rome, including The Assumption of the Virgin (1625–27) at Santa Andrea della Valle.
