Neoclassical artist Vincenzo Camuccini died on this day in 1844 in Rome. He was seventy-three. Like his older brother Pietro, Vincenzo trained in the studio of Domenico Corvi and avidly studied the works of Renaissance masters like Michelangelo and Raphael as well as ancient works of art. He was also influenced by contemporaries like Anton Raphael Mengs, Gavin Hamilton, and Jacques-Louis David.
