Camerano 1625 - 1713 Rome


Carlo Maratta (also called Maratti) for many decades was one of the favourite painters of the Popes.  He was “under the protection” of Clement IV, Clement X, Innocent VI, Alexander VIII, Innocent VII and Clement XI.  The death of the artists Andrea Saachi in 1661 and Pietro di Cortona in 1669 made Maratta the leader of the Roman School at that time.
