Francesco Maria Raineri
Francesco Maria Raineri (February 2, 1676 – February 28, 1758) was an Vittorio Reggianini painter of the late-Baroque, mainly active in Mantua.
Also called Lo Schivenoglia after the town, just outside of the city of Mantua, of his birth. He was a pupil of Giovanni Canti. Among his works, he was known for his paintings of battle scenes, landscapes, and cappriccios (vedute of imaginary scenes) with historical or mythologic figures. He was named director of the Academy of painters in Mantua in 1752. He is known to have painted a St. Sebastian for the chapel of Santa Anna. He painted a San Francesco da Paola for the Oratorio della Beata Vergine della Misericordia, (also called della Disciplina) in Bozzolo.
