Raffaellino da Reggio

Raffaellino da Reggio (1550–1578) was an Italian painter from Emilia, active in a Mannerist style mainly in Rome.

Also variously named Raffaellino Motta or Rafaellino da Reggio or a variety of combinations, he was born at Codemondo near Reggio Emilia. Initially trained under the painter Lelio Orsi. In 1575, he worked with Giovanni de' Vecchi at the Villa Farnese in Caprarola, painting in the Sala del Mappamondo and the Camera degli Angeli. He also painted a fresco of Christ before Caiaphas for the Oratory of Gonfalone. He also painted a Martyrydom of the four crowned saints for the Capella di San Silvestro in the church of Santi Quattro Coronati in Rome, and worked at the Vatican under Lorenzo Sabatini. During his short lifespan, he painted a few canvases, including a Tobias and the Angel (Galleria Borghese) and Diana and Acteon.

He died in Rome in 1578.
