Biographical notes:

Luca Cambiaso (1527-85) was born in Genoa and he initially worked with his father, Giovanni (1495-1579), a painter. Luca Cambiaso had a tremendous facility for drawing, which was widely imitated in Genoa. He went to Spain in 1567 to work for Philip II, particularly on the Escorial, and was appointed his court painter in 1583. He continued to work in Italy.
