The intense colours allow the painting to be dated to the early years of the artist’s career. A pupil of Albani (1578-1660) and the teacher of Maratta (1625-1713), Sacchi played an important role in the development of the most classical type of Baroque

The Painter Francesco Albani
Oil on canvas. 1635
Sacchi, Andrea

Between 1635 and 1636 Sacchi left Bologna in order to study the work of Correggio (c. 1489-1534) and the Venetian painters. Before leaving he painted a portrait of his teacher, Albani (1578-1660), aged fifty-six, and kept this image until his death. It was acquired by his pupil Carlo Maratti (1625-1713), from whose collection it passed to that of Philip V after Maratti’s death.
