An Italian painter and poet; born at Renella, near Naples, about 1615; died March 15, 1673. He wrote many lyric poems, which he set to music; and a number of satires, the best known of which are: "War", "Envy", "Babylon", "The Painter", "Poetry", and "Music". His writings display the same energy and life as are conspicuous in his paintings. His "Satires" were published in 1719, and were incorporated with his "Odes and Letters" (1860).
