Biography

Ludovico Mazzolino (also Mazzuoli or Manzulin da Ferrera), Italian painter of the Ferrarese school. His close contacts with Ercole Roberti's workshop are documented as are those with Boccaccio Boccaccino. His work also reflects the direct influence of Costa and the contacts with transalpine art. Later Raphaelesque tendencies, especially in his pictorial design, can be attributed to a period in Rome.
