Francesco Albani

Francesco Albani, born in 1578 in Bologna, was a leading Italian Baroque painter associated with the Bolognese school. Trained under Denys Calvaert and the Carracci brothers, his graceful, softly colored works on mythological and religious themes garnered him acclaim. He received prestigious commissions in Rome, known for his luminous frescoes adorning palaces and churches. Albani’s style evolved to blend classicism and naturalism, patronized by figures like Pope Clement VIII. His works are celebrated worldwide, and he passed away in 1660, leaving a lasting artistic legacy.
