Alberti, Cherubino

Alberti, Cherubino 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.
