Luca Cambiaso
Italian Mannerist painter
Italian, (1527–1585)
Luca Cambiaso (also known as Luchetto da Genova and as Luchino) was born at Moneglia near Genoa in 1527. He received his first instruction from his father, Giovanni Cambiaso, who is believed to have originated the foreshortening method of dividing the human body into small squares in order to obtain correct proportions in foreshortening. In 1583 he was employed by King Philip II of Spain at the Escorial, where he painted the ceiling of the choir and several alterpieces. He died at El Escorial in 1585.
