The architectural piece in 1700: The paintings of Alberto Carlieri (1672 - c.1720), pupil of Andrea Pozzo
Artibus et Historiae | IRSA Publishing House | Published : 2004
This article presents a catalogue of 144 paintings by Alberto Carlieri (1672 - c.1720), a painter of architectural caprices whose paintings have frequently been misidentified as early works by Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691-1765). Carlieri emerged from the workshop of Andrea Pozzo in the 1590s, and was apparently active in Rome until about 1720. Carlieri's sources in Pozzo are explored, and the architectural forms and compositions that form the primary subject of his pictures are subjected to a systematic 'transformational analysis' (to borrow a term from Hubert Damish).
