Bernardo de' Dominici

Bernardo de' Dominici (1683–1759) was an Italian art historian and painter of the late-Baroque period, active mainly in Naples, painting landscapes, marine vedute, and genre scenes such as characteristic of Bamboccianti. He was the pupil of the painter Mattia Preti, reportedly under the German painter of forested landscapes, Franz Joachim Beich.

Art history of Naples

In 1727, Dominici published a biography of Luca Giordano .[1] Dominici, however, is best remembered as the Neapolitan Vasari, after publishing in 1742 an ample, yet flawed, three volume collection of brief biographies of Neapolitan artists, Vite dei Pittori, Scultori, ed Architetti Napolitani.[2] It recounts the careers of artists from the "School of Naples," among these:
