Giovanni Domenico Campiglia, “Bacchus and Ampelos”, Post-1731
This engraving by Campiglia is an image of a Roman Statue in the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence. This was most likely published in 1734 in the “Museum Florentium”.
Giovanni Domenico Campiglia was an Italian painter and engraver from Florence, active under the patronage of the House of Medici. He initially trained under Tommaso Redi and Lorenzo del Moro, then in Bologna under Giovanni Gioseffo dal Sole, Campiglia worked with Antonio Francesco Gore for over a decade on the “Museum Florentium”, a collection of images of all the famous artists of Florence. His contributions were published in 1734, which induce Pope Clement XII to bring him to Rome, where Campiglia did engravings for artist Bottari’s multi-volume “Musei Capitolini”.
