Sisto Badalocchio

The following was originally from the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica.

Sisto Badalocchio, surnamed Rosa (1581?1647), Italian painter and engraver, was born at Parma.

He was of the school of Annibale Carracci, by whom he was highly esteemed for design. His principal engravings are the series known as Raphael?s Bible, which were executed by him in conjunction with Lanfranco, another pupil of Carracci, and which represented a series of frescoes by Raphael's workshop in the Vatican loggia.

The best of his paintings, which are few in number, are at Parma. He died at Bologna.
