François de Nomé

about 1593 - after 1630

François de Nomé came from Metz and settled in Naples, where he probably worked in the same workshop as Didier Barra, a painter of views of Naples. In the 18th century these two painters were grouped together as 'Monsù Desiderio'. It is now recognised that two distinct artists were involved.

Nomé was married in Naples in 1613, and his age is then recorded as 20. He was a painter of grandiose architectural fantasies.
