an Italian painter, best remembered for his writings on art theory, belonging to the second generation that produced Mannerism in Italian art and architecture. He was admired as an artist and in 1562 was depicted on a medallion by Annibale Fontana which described him as having been introduced by Mercury to Fortune (commercial success). Lomazzo became blind in 1571, and turned to writing, producing two complex treatises that are milestones in the development of art criticism.
