Biography

In 1781 he studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, then he moved to Rome where he studied from 1792 to 1803. Since the early years, was a friend of Vincent Camuccini, and with him and Luigi Sabatelli opened an atelier in Rome. In the style was influenced by the great French painter Jacques-Louis David. He returned to work in Arezzo and in 1807 he was called as a court painter by Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi and became director of the Academy of Florence. Along with a group of co-workers and students, Welcome was commissioned to decorate the new rooms of Palazzo Pitti in 1811-1812, among which we remember the Hall of Hercules. The Restoration did not yield a decline in his career and the new Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany gave him the task to paint the ceiling of the Medici Chapel of the Basilica of San Lorenzo, which he painted with eight major subjects from the Old and New Testament, the four prophets and the four Evangelists. He died shortly after leaving his post at the Academy. His most notable students were: Giuseppe Gandolfo, Stefano Ussi, Cesare Mussini, Antonio Ciseri, Francesco Mensi, Nicola Cianfanelli, Adeodato Malatesta and Francesco Giuseppe Bezzuoli Nenci.
