BiographyAlessandro Salucci’s work was first identified by
Andrea Busiri Vici in 1962. Salucci was a Florentine
painter specializing in imaginary architectural
scenes and harbour views. The figures in his
pictures were executed by other artists, like Jan
Miel and Michelangelo Cerquozzi. His Perspective
with Portico is from c. 1635–36 (Busiri Vici
Collection, Rome), while Harbour with Ruins
was painted in the 1650s (Hampton Court, Royal
Collection, London). In 1628 Salucci worked on
the frescoes of the Villa Sacchetti (now Chigi) in
Castelfusano. After 1635 he worked on frescoes
of sacred subjects in Santa Maria in Vallicella in
Rome.
