CERRINI Giovanni Domenico (b. 1609, Perugia, d. 1681, Roma) Nationality : Italian
Italian painter and draughtsman. He was trained by Giovanni Antonio Scaramuccia (1580-1633). Towards the mid-1630s he moved to Rome. His art owes much to Bolognese classicism and, in his last period, to Carlo Maratti. Most of Cerrini's paintings are undated, and, since his style apparently developed little, a chronology on stylistic grounds is hard to establish. Cerrini's first known work is an altarpiece for the right transept of S Maria in Traspontina, Rome: the Apparition of the Trinity to Mary Magdalene de' Pazzi, datable 1639 on the basis of a dedicatory inscription by the patron.
