ROSITI, Giovanni Battista
(b. ca. 1475, Forli, d. 1545, Forli)


Giovanni Battista Rositi (also Rosetti), Italian painter. He is a painter from the Forli school, active in Forli and in Romagna, but also in Central Italy. He was influenced above all by Marco Palmezzano.

There are only two authentic works by him, the panel depicting the Transport of the Santa Casa di Loreto (Diocesan Museum, Velletri) and a panel representing the Madonna with Child (Christian Museum, Esztergom). Another Madonna and Child in the Civic Pinacoteca of Forli was erroneously attributed to him.
