Antonia Campi was an Italian painter born in 1608, in the city of Crema. She was a major figure in the development of the style of Baroque painting in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. She was particularly renowned for her altarpieces, some of which are still displayed in churches and cathedrals across the world. One of her most well-known works is the 'Visitation' altarpiece, an oil painting that was purchased by the Pinacoteca di Brera in 1878. Another example of her work is the 'The Adoration of the Magi' which was painted in 1620 and is now held in the private collection of the Duke of Northumberland. Her paintings are known for their vivid use of color, dramatic gesture, and strong composition.
