Painter, fresco artist, decorative designer. Religious subjects, mythological subjects, landscapes with figures. Murals.

The son of a silk merchant, Albani resisted parental pressure to pursue a career in commerce. From a very early age, he took a strong interest in the arts and, at the age of 13, entered the workshop of the Flemish architect Denys Calvaert, where he met Guido Reni. Albani and Reni left Calvaert's workshop to study under the Caraccis, where they met Domenichino. Francesco Albani showed such rapid progress with the Carracci that he was soon working alongside them. Francesco was widowed in 1616; he re-married and fathered ten children who were reported to be so beautiful that he never lacked for models. Albani collaborated with Annibale Carracci to decorate the S Diego Chapel in the church of S Giacomo degli Spagnoli in Rome and to paint the frescoes in Monte Cavallo and the ceiling of a room in the Verospi Palace in Rome (which featured subjects taken from the writings of Ovid). His work on the Verospi Palace was highly acclaimed, so much so that he caught the attention of the duke of Mantua, who commissioned him to execute a series of murals for his palace; the works, based on episodes drawn from the legends of ...

Mariotto Albertinelli's life is particularly interesting. He was a gold beater until the age of 22, then entered the studio of Cosimo Roselli, where he met Fra Bartolomeo. The two young men formed a deep friendship and entered into a sort of artistic partnership. They painted a great number of works in collaboration, which they signed with a monogram (a cross between two rings). However, they were so different in character that their association did not last. Fra Bartolomeo, an extremely austere disciple of Savonarola, entered holy orders, weary of the life of debauchery his companion was leading. However, not long after, Albertinelli and Fra Bartolomeo were reconciled and collaborated again from 1509 to 1512, before falling out for good. Albertinelli became an innkeeper (Vasari claims that he took this decision following criticisms of his painting). He returned to life as an artist but was already very ill and died of exhaustion when scarcely 41 years old....
