Bartoli, Pietro Santi

(1615 - 1700)

Pietro Santi Bartoli (also Sante, Santo) (1615, Perugia - November 7, 1700, Rome) was an Italian engraver, draughtsman and painter. He moved to Rome in 1635, as the pupil of Poussin, later as antiquarian for Christina, Queen of Sweden. He engraved many Roman monuments, publishing in Admiranda Romanorum Antiquitatum (Rome, 1693). Bartoli engraved from Raphael, Polidoro da Caravaggio, the Carracci and Lanfranco, as well as his own subjects. About 1660, he excavated the Domus Aurea, of which he published drawings.

As a draughtsman, Bartoli reproduced the Codice Virgiliano (Rome, Vatican, Bib. Apostolica, Cod. Vat. 3867) in 55 plates (1677; Rome, Calcografia N.), commissioned by Cardinal Camillo Massimi. For Massimi, he also did drawings of ancient Roman paintings and mosaics (Glasgow, U. Lib.). Later, he lived in Paris, where he was introduced at the court of Louis XIV.
