OLIVIERI, Pier Paolo
(b. 1551, Roma, d. 1599, Roma)

Adoration of the Magi

Caetani Chapel, Santa Pudenziata, Rome

When Olivieri produced the marble altarpiece for the Caetani Chapel of the Santa Pudenziata - a typical Counter-Reformation creation - he fell in line with the position of Federico Zuccari, who dominated the Roman academic world.
