Cesare Filippi, the younger son and pupil of Camillo Filippi, was born at Ferrara in 1536. He assisted his father and brother Sebastiano in their works, and excelled in painting heads and grotesques in the ornamental style, although he sometimes attempted historical subjects, which are very feeble imitations of the style of his brother. Such is his picture of the 'Crucifixion' in the church of La Morte. He died after 1602.
