Self-Portrait, 1615

Orazio Borgianni was an Italian painter and etcher of the Mannerist and early Baroque periods. Borgianni was born and mainly active in Rome but also traveled to Spain (1598-1603). In Spain, he signed a petition to begin an Italianate academy of painting. From his time in Spain, there remain two of his paintings in the Prado Museum: St Christopher and the Stigmatization of St Francis. He frescoed in the apse of the church of San Silvestro in Capite in Rome, a Martyrdom of S.Stefano I and a Messengers of Costantine call on San Silvestro (1610). He was the stepbrother of the sculptor and architect Giulio Lasso. His canvas of San Carlo Borromeo in the church of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane (1612) is an eclectic and emotive synthesis of both Carracci and tenebrist styles. The influence of Caravaggio is also evident in a painting of the same saint (1616) now in the Hermitage Museum. A lively self-portrait of an earnest, somewhat foppish Borgianni is in the Rome Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica.
