Alessandro Magnasco
Italian Baroque
Italian, (1667–1749)
Alessandro Magnasco (called Alessandrino or Il Lissandrino), born in Genoa in 1667, was the son of a painter, Stefano (c. 1635-c. 1672). Around 1680, Alessandro apprenticed with the painter Filippo Abbiati (1640-1715), and by the early 1690s, he was established as a portrait painter. By 1695, the date of his first signed work, Magnasco was painting genre scenes, sometimes incorporating historical subjects. Typical of his work is the placement of smaller figures within panoramic landscapes or interiors. Magnasco worked primarily in Milan and Florence but returned to Genoa around 1735, where he died in 1749.
