Alberti, Cherubino

Resource Toolbox

a distinguished Italian painter and engraver, was born at Borgo San Sepolcro in 1552. It is probable that he was a scholar of Cornelius Cort; and afterwards acquired a freer style by studying the works of Francesco Villamena and Agostino Caracci. He was far more distinguished as an engraver than as a painter; and executed 180 prints, 75 of which are from his own designs. He died at Rome in 1615. Some of his most important works are, Portrait of Pope Gregory XIII: The Flight into Egypt (in 1574): The Holy Family, with St. Elizabeth (dated 1571): The Body of Christ Supported in the Clouds by Angels: The Virgin Mary and Infant in the Clouds, inscribed "Regina Caeli:" Mary Magdalene, Penitent (dated 1582): The Crucifixion: St. Andrew Bearing the Cross: Christ Praying in the Garden: and many others of value.
