CELESTI Andrea (b. 1637, Venezia, d. 1712, Venezia) Nationality : Italian

Italian painter. He trained Matteo Ponzoni and Sebastiano Mazzoni. Mazzoni encouraged the development of a Baroque style, but Celesti was also attracted by the naturalism of the tenebrists. The first known works by Celesti are mature in style, and he had already achieved considerable fame in Venice when the Doge Alvise Contarini honored him with the title of Cavaliere in 1681. The complexity of his sources is evident in two canvases, Moses Destroying the Golden Calf and Moses Chastising the Hebrew People for their Idolatry, both painted for the Palazzo Ducale, Venice, and signed Cavaliere. They are influenced by Luca Giordano and by the narrative techniques of Jacopo Tintoretto.
