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).
