Andrea Sacchi was born near Rome in 1599. It is thought that he first studied in the workshop of Benedetto Sacchi who adopted him as his son. He later went on to study under the direction of Guiseppe Cesari and Francesco Albani.
Carlo Maratta was Sacchi's most famous pupil who completed many of his former teacher's commissions when later in life he suffered from nervous breakdowns and gout.
He died in Rome in 1661.
