Franceschini

Franceschini, Baldassare, 1611-89, Florentine painter; pupil of his father, who was a sculptor. He was also called Volterrano. His works include the Coronation of the Virgin, a fresco in the dome of the Church of the Annunziata, Florence; paintings in the Niccolini Chapel, Church of Santa Croce, Florence; and St. John the Evangelist (Church of Santa Chiara, Volterra).
Franceschini, Marcantonio, 1648-1729, Italian painter of the Bolognese school. After working as Carlo Cignani's assistant for more than 10 years, Franceschini developed an independent style about 1680. For the next two decades he executed many large-scale decorations in northern Italy, among them the three large frescoes in the tribune of San Bartolomeo, Bologna (1691-92) and the ceiling decoration of the palace, Modena (1696).
