Stefano Della Bella (1610-1664)
Painter, Etcher, Engraver. An important printmaker as well as a consummate draftsman. Possessed a skilled and playful hand. Lived at a time when graphic art had a large international audience. An exact contemporary of Giovanni-Benedetto Castiglione and Rembrandt van Rijn. Was most strongly influenced by the French artist Jacques Callot. Son of the sculptor Francesco della Bella, who wished for him to carry on the profession. However, Stefano's early designs were so extraordinary that Francesco sent him to study painting with Cesare Dandini. However, Stefano wanted to be an engraver, and with his father's blessing he entered the atelier of Remigio Cantagallina, the teacher of Callot. A protégé of the Medici, he worked for them before going to Rome ca. 1638. Worked in Paris for many French publishers, returning to Florence in 1650, at which time the Grand Duke of Tuscany named him the design teacher for his son Cosme. Stefano is buried in the church at San Ambrogio.
