(active 1563-1585)


Italian painter. Little documentary evidence survives concerning the life of Niccolò Frangipane, who is recorded as working in Venice and the Marches during the second half of the 16th century. His oeuvre consists principally of three types of painting: religious works, many of which draw heavily from Titian's production of the 1540s and 1550s; arcadian figures, in the style of Giorgione; and light-hearted mythological or genre scenes, reminiscent of the work of Vincenzo Campi.
