Paolo Antonio Alboni

1665–1730, Bologna

In 1710 Paolo Antonio Alboni, a landscape painter active in his native Bologna as well as in Rome, Naples and Faenza, went to Vienna, where he stayed for a number of years. Tradition has it that Alboni was brilliant at imitating Flemish and German landscape painters of the time. He is also said to have suffered a stroke in 1722, which meant that he could subsequently only draw with his left hand.
