Lanfranio [sic] was a pupil of both Carracci with whom he worked in the church of St. Yago and the Farnesean Palace, and for many pieces there it is doubtful whether they are his work or that of his masters. His genius led him to grand compositions. He is particularly celebrated for his performances in the Cupola of St. Andrea della Valle where are figures of 20 feet in height which have a noble effect.
