Giovanni battista pergolesi - claudio gallico - four cantatas for soprano and instruments


His parents were in comfortable circumstances, but not of the nobility ; it appears from his letters to Giovanni Maria Lancisi that Morgagni had ambitions to improve his rank. It may be inferred that he succeeded from the fact that he is described on a memorial tablet at Padua as nobilis forolensis , "noble of Forlì ", apparently by right of his wife. At the age of eighteen he went to Bologna to study philosophy and medicine, and he graduated with much praise as a doctor in both faculties three years later, in 1701. He acted as prosector to Antonio Maria Valsalva (one of the distinguished pupils of Malpighi ), who held the office of demonstrator anatomicus in the Bologna school, and whom he assisted more particularly in preparing his celebrated work on the Anatomy and Diseases of the Ear , published in 1704.

Cima was one of the most prolific artists in Venice at the end of the 15th century. More than thirty altarpieces by Cima survive - more than for any of his contemporaries. They include 'The Incredulity of Saint Thomas' .

According to Vasari, Cima was trained by Giovanni Bellini . Even if this was not a formal relationship, it is clear that Bellini's art was a formative influence on him. Although not an original or inventive artist, Cima seems to have had a large and efficient workshop . Its output was large, often varying a standard pattern. Like Bellini he made many domestic images of the Madonna and Child.

Cima worked in many towns in the Veneto, including Parma and Treviso. He was in regular touch with Conegliano, his birthplace. This connection may have helped him export the Venetian type of altarpiece to the provinces.
