22. Antonio Boldini

Ferrara 1799-1872
Painter and father of the famous Giovanni Boldini. He mainly devoted himself to religious painting, and copies of sixteenth century paintings from the School of Ferrara, namely by Il Garofalo; many of these were accepted into public and private collections as original Renaissance works. The extremely modest appearance of his tomb, positioned on the ground, stands in marked contrast to the two majestic mausoleums dedicated to his more famous son.
