ZAFFORINI, FILIPPO

(fl. c. 1799-1811)

Scene-Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A clever Italian artist who was employed by F. E. Jones as a scene-painter at the Crow Street theatre from about 1799, and was associated with Marinari (q.v.) in its decoration in 1810. He was afterwards for a time with Henry Erskine Johnstone at the Peter Street theatre; but as he was unable to get payment for his work he left, and was taken back by Jones. Zafforini also practised as a miniature painter, and lived at No. 2 Loftus Lane. His name does not appear after 1811.
