Lazzaro Tavarone

1556–1641, Genoa

A native of Genoa, Lazzaro Tavarone was taught by Luca Cambiaso and in 1583 followed his mentor to Spain, where Cambiaso had been appointed to the court of Philipp II. After the death of his teacher in 1585 Tavarone remained in Spain for quite some time before returning to Genoa in 1596 at the latest. In the course of his productive career Tavarone developed into a respected and much sought-after painter of frescoes and series of deco­rative scenery.
