CADES Giuseppe (b. 1750, Roma, d. 1799, Roma) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter. He trained at Rome's Accademia di San Luca but left in 1766 when his master came to resent his excessive independence. When he received his first important commissions in the early 1770s, he employed a late Baroque classicist style inspired by Carlo Maratta. Around 1774, through his association with Johann Heinrich Fuseli's circle, he began adopting influences from Mannerist and Renaissance painting, as well as the antique. Cades painted subjects from religious history and Greek, Roman, and Italian Renaissance literature.
