BACKGROUND INFORMATION

From a 16th.c. Dutch mannierm work.

Biography engraver: Cherubino Alberti (1553-1615), also called Borghegiano, was an Italian engraver and painter. He is most often remembered for the Roman frescoes completed with his brother Giovanni Alberti during the papacy of Clement VIII. He was most prolific as an engraver of copper plates.

Biography artist: Polidoro Caldara, usually known as Polidoro da Caravaggio (c.1499-1543) was an Italian painter of the Mannerist period, “arguably the most gifted and certainly the least conventional of Raphael’s pupils”, who was best known for his now-vanished paintings on the facades of Roman houses. He was unrelated to the later painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, usually known just as Caravaggio, but both came from the town of Caravaggio.
