Saint Charles in Glory

Giulio Cesare Procaccini

The date of this painting, once the altarpiece in the Cattaneo Adorno family chapel in the church of San Francesco ad Albaro in Genoa, is the subject of some debate. It appears to be a youthful
work by Procaccini who is known to have been in Genoa in 1618, although he had already worked for his authoritative patron Gian Carlo Doria prior to that date. Charles Borromeo, who was canonised on 1 November 1610, is surrounded by angels in a splendid array of dazzling colours.
