Luca Cambiaso

Luca Cambiasi, also known as Luca Cambiaso and Luca Cangiagio (the surname in Ligurian; 18 November 1527 – 6 September 1585) was an Italian painter and draftsman and the leading artist in Genoa in the 16th century.
He is considered the founder of the Genoese school who established the local tradition of historical fresco painting through his many decorations of Genoese churches and palaces. He produced a number of poetic night scenes.
He was a prolific draughtsman who sometimes reduced figures to geometric (even cubic) forms.[1] He was familiarly known as Lucchetto da Genova.
