Albani Francesco (1578-1660)

Francesco Albani or Albano was an Italian Baroque painter. He was born in Bologna. His father was a silk merchant who intended to instruct his son in the same trade; but by age twelve, Albani became an apprentice under the competent mannerist painter Denis Calvaert, before joining the so-called "Carracci Academy". This studio fostered the careers of many painters of the Bolognese school, including Domenichino, Massari, Viola, Lanfranco, Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi, Pietro Faccini, Remigio Cantagallina, and Reni. He was an enthusiastic pupil there.

Like so many other artists from Bologna, in the year 1600 he moved to Rome to study classical art which he then applied with zeal to his own work. During Carracci's predominance of Roman fresco painting Albani became one of most prominent apprentices.

Albani's classicism can be seen in the altarpieces he painted after returning to Bologna. Among works with sacred subjects is The Baptism of Christ now in the Bologna, Pinacoteca Nazionale, then St Sebastian and an Assumption of the Virgin, both in the church of San Sebastiano fuori le Mura in Rome.

His love of classical antiquity is still more evident in the cycles he painted on mythological subjects, a genre of painting he practically established. He used mythology or the allegorical elements as the pretext to paint smiling idylls. He was adding nymphs, goddesses, little putties set against luminous landscapes. In this way he created an appetite for light-hearted, pleasant works which lasted throughout the seventeenth century. It did, however, tend at times to decline into insipidity. His favorite format for this type of composition was the rondo or oval.

Albani is derided often for his lyric, cherubim-filled sweetness, which often has not yet shaken the mannerist elegance. His style sometimes appears to befit the decorative Rococo more than of his time. Among the pupils of Albani were his brother Giovanni Battista Albani, and others including Giacinto Bellini, Girolamo Bonini, Giacinto Campagna, Antonio Catalani, Carlo Cignani, Giovanni Maria Galli, Filippo Menzani, Andrea Sacchi, Andrea Sghizzi, Giovanni Battista Speranza, Antonio Maria del Sole, Emilio Taruffi, and Francesco Vaccaro.
