TASSI Agostino (b. 1578, Roma, d. 1644, Roma) Nationality : Italian

The son of a furrier named Domenico Tassi, Agostino Tassi, who aspired to nobility, invented the story of his adoption by the Marchese Tassi. When still young he left Rome for Tuscany where he was employed by the Medici perhaps briefly in Florence and for many years in Livorno. In all likelihood his long stay there, interrupted by visits to Rome in 1599 and to Genoa in 1606, was at least in part dictated by punishment for a crime. Little is known of his artistic formation, which probably included contact with Paul Bril and Giulio Parigi. Tassi returned to Rome in late 1610. There, under the direction of Cigoli, he executed a frieze of landscapes and seascapes in Palazzo Firenze (lost).
