    Born in Genoa, Cambiaso established his reputation in his hometown, painting mostly altarpieces and other religious works in churches and Palaces throughout the city. He travelled to Rome several times where he was influenced by Michelangelo and Correggio. In addition to painting, he was also a prolific draughtsman. Two years before his death in 1583, he was commissioned by Philip II of Spain to assist with the decoration at the Escorial.
