Manfredo LODI

Active c.1600 in Cremona


Almost nothing is known of the Cremonese artist Manfredo Lodi. He is only documented between 1601 and 1611, and was a follower and collaborator of his fellow Cremonese painter Giovanni Battista Trotti, known as Il Malosso. Only two signed paintings by Manfredo Lodi are known today; a fresco of The Baptism of Christ in the church of Sant’Agostino in Cremona and a painting of The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist, in an Italian private collection. His two sons Ermenegildo and Giovanni Battista Lodi were both artists.
