CAVAROZZI Bartolomeo (b. ca. 1590, Viterbo, d. 1625, Roma) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter, a native of Viterbo, who settled at a relatively early age in Rome, where, he stayed with the Viterbese painter Tarquinio Ligustri, who proved instrumental in acquainting the artist with the aristocratic Crescenzi family. This introduction not only brought Cavarozzi into contact with an eminent family of patrons, but also friendship with the painter and architect Giovanni Battista Crescenzi, who had trained in the studio of Pomarancio and who would later, in 1617-19, take Cavarozzi to Spain. Cavarozzi moved into the Crescenzi palace near the Pantheon and his close connection with this family led to his being nicknamed "Bartolomeo del Crescenzi".
