Gioacchino Assereto

Gioacchino Assereto (1600 - 28 June, 1649) was an italian painter of the early Baroque period, active in Genoa.

He initially apprenticed with Luciano Borzone and later Giovanni Andrea Ansaldo. He painted two vault frescoes in the church of Santissima Annunziata del Vastato: "David and Abimelech" and "Santi Giovanni and Pietro healing the lame". He also shows the influence of Bernardo Strozzi, a tenebrism moderated by venetian coloristic effects and garbing the subjects in modern peasant garb, in paintings such as "Moses obtaining water from the Rock" (Prado Museum, Madrid). Orazio de’ Ferrari may have worked with Assereto in Ansaldo’s studio.
