Biography

Baldi was born in Pistoia and died in Rome. He is initially postulated to have been a pupil of a little known Francesco Leoncini in his native city.[1] But he soon moved to Rome to form part of the large studio directed by Pietro da Cortona, where Baldi became adept at fresco technique. He painted a David and Goliath for Alexander VII in the Palazzo Quirinale, as well as frescoes (1658) for the church of San Giovanni in Oleo and a San Giovanni in Patmos(1660–1665) for San Giovanni in Laterano. He also painted an altarpiece of the Martyrdom of St. Lazarus for the church of Santi Luca e Martina. In 1695, he became principe of the Accademia di San Luca in Rome.[2] He also worked in Camerino; Pistoia (an Annunciation for the church of San Francesco and a Repose in Egypt for the Umilta); and Perugia (Casa Borgia-Montemellino).[3] He died in Rome. As an engraver, Baldi is known for a plate on The Conversion of St. Paul.

One of his pupils was Giovanni Domenico Brugieri.[4]
