BiographyAlberto Carlieri was possibly of French origin
and was presumably based in Rome for most of
his life. He was a pupil of the architectural painter
Giuseppe Marchi and of Andrea Pozzo. From
Pozzo, Carlieri learned quadratura painting, and
he worked as his assistant in the 1690s. Claudio
Strinati has suggested that the quadratura temperas
of the Sacro Cuore convent at Trinità dei
Monti in Rome, which have traditionally been
given to Pozzo – who was responsible for the
overall conception – might be by Carlieri. For
the more decorative aspects of his work, Carlieri
turned to painters like Viviano and Niccolò Codazzo
and Giovanni Ghisolfi. Carlieri’s general
oeuvre is distinguished by architectural abundance
and lively figures, an intense chiaroscuro,
free brushwork and brilliance of colour, as can
be seen in the Judgment of Solomon (Bayerische
Staatsgemäldesammlungen, Munich).
