(Born Camerano, 15 May 1625; died Rome, 15 December 1713). Italian painter. He was the leading painter of his time in Rome and after the death of Bernini in 1682 he was the most famous artist in the city. A pupil of Andrea Sacchi, he continued the tradition of the classical Grand Manner, based on Raphael, and he gained an international reputation particularly for his paintings of the Madonna and Child, which are reworkings of types established during the High Renaissance.
