Camuccini, Vicenzo (1771-1844) - 1798 The Death of Caesar
Vincenzo Camuccini was an Italian painter of Neoclassic histories and religious paintings. He was considered the premier academic painter of his time in Rome. Camuccini was born at Rome and first educated by his brother Pietro, a picture-restorer, and Pietro Leone Bombelli, an engraver. He also received training with Domenico Corvi. Till nearly the age of thirty, he mainly dedicated himself to copying old masters. As an original painter, Camuccini belongs to the neoclassic school fostered in Rome by Anton Raphael Mengs. Camuccini's first major independent work, completed around 1798, was a large canvas of the Death of Caesar. This led to the assessment that Camuccini may have been influenced by David's classic Roman themes and style; but it is more likely both were emerging from the rising Neoclassic refocus towards images of and derived from Greco-Roman themes.
In 1800, he was commissioned an Incredulity of St. Thomas (copy of mosaic) by the Vatican. In 1806, Gaspare Landi received a commission for two large canvases for the chapel of the Madonna of the Rosary in the church of San Giovanni in Piacenza. Ultimately, the commission was split with Camuccini who painted a Presentation in the Temple. The canvases by the two artists were completed in the early spring of 1806, and were exhibited side by side at the Pantheon at Easter of that year. A few years later, he was invited to Munich and Paris, the latter government had requested a painting on the Battle of Ratisbon, but he asked and obtain other topics. In Paris, he met both Napoleon, David, as well as Perodet, Gros, Regnault, and M. Gerard.
As a portrait painter he attained considerable eminence; among the best he produced are those of Pope Pius VII; the Comte de Blacas, Ambassador from France to the Holy See; the King of Naples; and the Queen of Naples. Several of his works were engraved by Betteliniblish, and some have been lithographed by Scudellari. Camuccini was appointed inspector-general of the Museums of the Pope, and of the Factory of Mosaics, and director of the Neapolitan Academy of Rome. He was a member of the Institute of France, during some years president of the Academy of St. Luke. Pope Pius VII conferred upon him the title of Baron, with hereditary succession, and the Emperor Francis I the order of the Iron Crown.

That's what this DVD cover has written on it in Hebrew. Along with the camel and the current situation here in the Middle East, seems almost ironic to me.
