Francesco Solimena (fränchās´kō sōlēmā´nä), 1657–1717, Italian painter. Painting in the decorative tradition of the late baroque in Naples, Solimena was a technical virtuoso. His decorations for building interiors (e.g., Gesù Nuovo; 1725) are filled with twisting, dramatically foreshortened figures. Solimena was a teacher of international influence.
