Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Alessandro Magnasco, known also as Il Lissandrino, was an apprentice at the workshop of the painter Filippo Abbiati in Milan.

There he came into contact with the contemporary Venetian style, which he would adopt, characterized by strong contrasts of light and the use of mellow brushwork.
Between 1703 and 1709-1710, he settled in Florence where he started to collaborate with Antonio Francesco Peruzzini, a painter specializing in natural scenes.

The two artists returned to Milan where together they produced several landscapes filled with small figures and ancient ruins, until the death of Peruzzini in 1724. The peculiar style of Magnasco and the unusual subjects of his works, granted him patronage and commissions until the end of his life.

Antonio Francesco Peruzzini reached Rome in 1663, where he painted two stormy seascapes for the musician Giulio Cavalletti and canvas for Charles Emanuel II of Savoy.

Until the end of 17th century, he did not stop travelling, often collaborating with colleagues who added human figures to his landscapes.

But it was in Florence that he met Alessandro Magnasco, with whom he moved to Milan and worked in association on many religious, mythological and pastoral scenes until the end of his life. Magnasco's fantastic, tiny figures fit into Peruzzini's natural environments.

These are enlivened by Rococo hints that suggest the idea of a mythical, suspended time.
