Artists who influenced Francesco Albani
Francesco Albani or Albano was an Italian Baroque painter. Born 1578 in Bologna, his father was a silk merchant who intended to instruct his son in the same trade; but by age twelve, Albani became an apprentice under the competent mannerist painter Denis Calvaert, where he met Guido Reni. Soon he followed Reni to the so-called Academy run by the Carracci family: Annibale, Agostino, and Ludovico. T ... more (Google)Artists who were influenced by Francesco Albani
