ANNA, BALDASARRE, a painter who flourished during part
of the 16th and 17th centuries. He was born at Venice, probably
about 1560, and is said to have been of Flemish descent. The date
of his death is uncertain, but he seems to have been alive in 1639.
For a number of years he studied under Leonardo Corona, and on
the death of that painter completed several works left unfinished
by him. His own activity seems to have been confined to the
production of pieces for several of the churches and a few private
houses in Venice, and the old guide-books and descriptions of the
city notice a considerable number of paintings by him. Scarcely
any of these, however, have survived.
