Milanese School.

G.-B. Crespi travelled throughout Italy and studied in Rome and Venice before settling in Milan, where he soon earned the favour and patronage of the reigning duke, 'so that he could preside over Cardinal Federico [Borromeo]'s vast projects, and direct the Academy' (according to Lanzi). In fact, Crespi was befriended by the Cardinal in Rome (Federico was the nephew of St Charles Borromeo), and travelled to Milan with him. It was Borromeo who appointed Crespi to the directorship of the Accademia Ambrosiania, which he had founded in 1620, and who commissioned him to oversee the sculptural decoration of the city's cathedral. Some historians credit Giulio Cesare Procaccini with Crespi's training. Lanzi, however, cites him as a rival who Crespi sought to surpass, but who nonetheless influenced his work. It is generally agreed that during his early travels, Crespi studied the work of Pellegrino Tibaldi, Barocci, Gaudenzio Ferrari and the Late Mannerists. He developed his own artistic personality through a series of commissions for the cathedral in Milan: four large compositions showing ...
