Who was Sante Cattaneo?

Sante Cattaneo or Santo Cattaneo was an Italian painter of the Neoclassic period, mainly active in Brescia.

He was also called Santino. He was born at Salò, Italy. His parents traveled away and consigned him at age three to thirteen to his aunt. He then moved to Brescia to live with his mother, who worked in wool looms. He at first practised wood-engraving, but afterwards studied painting under Antonio Dusi of Brescia and then, with Francesco Monti. He studied in 1776 at the Accademia Clementina of Bologna. He settled at Brescia in 1773, and in 1810 became professor of drawing in the Art academy of that city. He died in Brescia. Among Cattaneo's pupils are Domenico Vantini and Carlo Frigerio. Professor Romualdo Turini of Salò was a pupil and his biographer.
