Cherubino Alberti (1553-1615)

(b Borgo San Sepolcro, 24 Feb 1553; d Rome, 18 Oct 1615). Painter and printmaker, brother of Alessandro Alberti. One of his earliest prints, an etching of the Virgin and Child shows his interest in Raphael as well as in contemporary Mannerist art. In Rome he studied with Cornelius Cort, whose swelling burin line he adopted to create pictorial effects of strong chiaroscuro. Between 1571 and 1575 he made several prints after Federico Zuccaro and Taddeo Zuccaro During the next ten years he reached the height of his fame as a printmaker, producing engravings after Raphael, Michelangelo, Polidoro da Caravaggio and of ancient statues. His oeuvre includes over 180 prints. He did not engrave all the prints belonging to this group but was assisted by artists from the period.
