Pasquale Chiesa

Holy Saturday seems to be a good time to salute the work of Pasquale Chiesa--"Easter Church," credited as the painter of two respectable oils that hang in Rome's Galeria Doria Pamphilj.  

You know about Pasquale?  Good, then you are in a club of one.  He is a painter about whom, it seems, nothing is known--zero, nada, bubkas, zilch--except his name and the attributions.  Have a good weekend, Pasquale.  Vixere fortis and all that.  At least you left a couple of creditable pieces of work behind.
