Benvenuto Tisi da Garofalo (called Il Garofalo, because of its supposed birthplace Garofalo) was an Italian painter of the late Renaissance. He also bears the name because he has some of his works with a small carnation (garofalo).

He was trained by the Renaissance painter Domenico Panetti , during which time he also worked with the well-known Italian painter Dosso Dossi . He then moved to Cremona, where he worked for the local artist Boccaccio Boccaccino and learned the Emilian style. He also introduced him to the color style of Venetian art. After that, he moved to Bologna to Lorenzo Costa the Elder , another important Italian Renaissance artist, in whose workshop he worked. In Ferrara he worked again alongside Dosso Dossi and his brother Battista. There he also painted frescoes in the Palazzo Costabili, as well as the ceiling painting on the ground floor. In 1512 he traveled to Rome to the royal court of Pope Julius II and met one of the greatest masters of all time, Raphael. With this he is said to have worked on the Vatican rooms. Inspired by his classic style, he returned to Ferrara to work for Duke Alfonso I d'Este, one of the greatest patrons of the Renaissance period. Many of the artworks can be found in the numerous churches in Ferrara. Around 1520 he is said to have had the apprentice painter and architect Girolamo da Carpi as an apprentice and to have been working on projects in Ferrara for 20 years. During this time Il Garofalo went blind in one eye. In the foreground of his works were mainly altarpieces and religious motifs, such as frescoes of St. Peter and St. Paul.

Among his earlier known works are "Madonna and Child", "Poseidon and Pallade" and the "Madonna del Baldacchino", which were made around 1510. Around 1519 and 1529 he worked on his most famous works: for the church of San Francesco he made the "slaughter of the innocent", for the Domenican church in Ferrara the "martyrdom of Peter". The "Procession of the Knights" he painted in Rome for the Palazzo Colonna, his work "announcement" is also in Rome, in the Pinacoteca Capitolina. His "Allegory of Love" and "Agony in the Garden" are now in the National Gallery in London.

Benvenuto Tisi was soon completely blind and eventually died in 1559. Already years before, he had provided for his grave niche, in which his wife was already buried. Centuries later, his remains were transferred to another cemetery, where a monument was erected in his honor by the sculptor Angelo Conti. © Meisterdrucke
