Antonio d'Enrico, called Tanzio da Varallo, or simply il Tanzio (c. 1575/1580
– ca. 1632/1633) was an Italian painter of the late-Mannerist or early Baroque
He was born in Riale d’Alagna, and was active mainly in Lombardy and Piedmont,
including the Sacro Monte at Varallo Sesia, where he worked contemporaneously
with Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli (il Morazzone). He painted a Circumcision for
Fara San Martino, and a Virgin with saints for the Collegiate at Pescocostanzo.
Some of his paintings acquire the influence of Tenebrist styles and morbid
thematic characteristic of the followers of Caravaggio and also of many Lombard
painters, including his somewhat gruesome David with Goliath (1620). His
animated and crowded Battle of Sennacherib (1627-28) for the Basilica of San
Gaudenzio reflects the influence of his work in the Sacri Monti of Piedmont and
Lombardy, painting scenographic diorama scenes
