Dolci, Carlo (1616-1686), a painter of the Florentine school, born at Florence where, too, he died. His subjects consist largely of Saints and Madonnas, and his style has been described as "sweet and melancholy." A French writer calls him "le oeintre favori des Anglais." He was a pupil of Jacopo Vignali. His St. Cecilia at the Organ and Herodias with the Head of St. John the Baptist are at Dresden, St. Andrew in Prayer in the Pitti Gallery, and his Christ on the Mount of Olives in the Louvre. Bartolozzi has engraved his Virgin Suckling the Child.
