Giuseppe Maria Crespi

Crespi, Giuseppe Maria (jōzĕpˈpā märēˈä krāsˈpē) [key], 1665–1747, Italian painter of the Bolognese school, called Lo Spagnuolo. He is well represented in and around Bologna. His best-known works are the imposing paintings of the Seven Sacraments (1712; Dresden), but he is also noted for his spontaneous rendering of genre scenes.
